    Plus someone has to break the law to be in prison. He didn't break the law. Her mother consented.

    See WHC who voted no for banning but is strongly against same sex marriage. I guess it's icky but okay if they're straight, but its icky and not okay if they're gay.
    Can you please tell me what you see as "obviously icky" about this relationship?

    I understand the OP was trying to push the gay agenda here using this but it didn't work.

    You can't have 'an intact family environment' without being married. Tell that to SIL's mother, who lived with her partner for over 40 years until he went into a nursing home.

    My dad was 18 years older than his second wife, too. Their marriage lasted till she died 28 years later and they were more in love on their 28th anniversary than on their wedding day.

    Totally OT, but your avatar is adorable.

    Yup, love is from the heart, and it doesn't care how old the other person is. If you find your soulmate, it's not relevant if the person is 1 day younger than you or 30 years younger, assuming the younger person isn't 3.

    Meh, a piece of paper doesn't make you an intact family unit. My husband and I lived together for 4 years before we got married, and our children were just as well taken care of before we got married as after. They were fed, they were clothed, and they didn't feel any less loved once we had the piece of paper than when we didn't have it.

    I think love makes an intact family environment. Stability. Dinner on the table at night. Game nights. Listening to the kids.

    In my opinion, those are much more important to an intact family environment than a piece of paper.

    There should be a ? at the end of the first sentence, it's too late for me to edit.
