    When upwards of 50% of all marriages end in divorce do you really think "traditional marriage" is the answer to anything?

    IMO opinion the divorce rate is symptomatic of a culture that no longer values marriage as the cultural norm just as is the fact that so many people are no longer bothering to get married at all.

    Re: Has your marriage changed since SCOTUS ruling?

    Just observing my own family members and my neighbors, those kids who are brought up in a one parent household who from time to time bring some lover into the home to play house for a little while seem to have one drama-o-rama after another when it comes to their children. Those who commit to marriage raising their children in a more secure/stable environment seem to fair much better. It certainly is better for society when they do.

    Sounds like you're entirely in favor of SSM then. A committed marriage with a secure and stable environment.

    We can agree on something.

    Makes one wonder what the fight for SSM was really all about, doesn't it?

    In a word: fear

    I just can't figure out why couples like this have the power to strike so much fear into some people?

    I can't imagine why people think they do. Maybe there is some other reason.

    WTHeck is the problem?.
    And as mentioned in another thread, ya still can't marry your sister or gopher, no matter what.
    And it ain't gonna lead to incest based marriages.
    incest was legal in all 50 states up to civil war, and still is in 20 states. That particular slippery slope is especially hilarious, when it's been around far longer than SSM

    Good one. Stable to me is a mother and a father. There's no way I could have contributed all that he did in raising our children.

    Well it used to be from everyone being closeted, so there was this fear that homosexuals preyed on children and were incapable of love.

    Now it seems a lot like the witch craze tbh. See, they may appear normal, but don't be fooled! They're sending their spirits out to the sabbat at night, eating babies during their orgies with demons.
