-how is it different than any other contract that the government simply legally protects
-why would civil unions/domestic partnerships (some anti marriage support these things) not have this "encouragement and recognition" that they speak of?
-and why would it change at all for those not interested in others subjective versions of marriage? Meaning if a person is gay the chances of them participating in that is small already.
again this is not your stance so I dont know what your guess may be if you have any at all so others please feel free if you have these views to state what you think this "encouragement and recognition" because i currently dont see it any different than anything else. WHat am I missing?
