    If you mean as far as divorce and abuse type problems, I predict it'll fall in line with heterosexual marriages.

    On a serious note, anyone who would threaten to divorce over this just makes me scratch my head. It's so beyond dumb and self-defeating it doesn't even compute.

    How long have you been married?

    Did the SSM ruling by SCOTUS somehow change your marriage?
    Nope, still divorced.

    You have a problem with what you wrote. Marriage is Marriage there is no unreal or real thing. They are all real. I think comments like yours were being bandied about by the people who had their sensibilities crushed when mixed marriage or marriage between a white and a black was legalized. You will heal in time. I am sure there will be those who keep track of such things.

    Oh bull****, marriage is between one man and one woman. Even Obama said that, before it became politically expedient to flip flop. Typical of leftists to try and paint opposition to SSM as similar to racist bigotry. Libs can't seem to make a point without lying. There is nothing for me to heal from.

    Marriage remains what it always has been, a specific sacred union between a man and a woman. No mortal government has the authority to define it otherwise.
    Churches spoke out against interracial marriage as well. The reaction of the people is much like the reaction of the people to this decision.
    As far as intermarriage is concerned, the "eternity" hoped for by the court in Georgia came to a crashing halt everywhere in the U.S. 98 years later. In 1967 the U.S. Supreme Court declared the remaining anti-miscegenation laws in 16 states to be unconstitutional. All U.S. couples -- whether of the same or different races -- were eligible to marry in any state, as long as they consisted of one woman and one man. The Court reached this conclusion even though the vast majority (72%) of American adults were opposed to legalizing interracial marriage at the time. Also a near majority (48%) favored criminal punishments for interracial couples who married .
    The battle over inter-racial marriage in the U.S.

    It seems like people and churches have gotten over that decision. I can't wait to see the reaction when polygamy is made legal any number of years from now.

    Hm?

    (1) If God meant for it to be only "Adam and Eve" and not "Adam and Steve", then explain the existence of naturally-born hermaphrodites. Yes, they're very rare, but they do exist and are born with both male and female genitalia...and all it takes is just one to be naturally born to show that YES, God allows such to exist...

    ...and that there's a lot more to human sexuality than only "Adam and Eve".

    (2) So...could you force yourself to be sexually attracted to a man? No? Why not? Is it because you are personally able to CHOOSE to not be attracted to, say, George Clooney? Or if it's not a choice, then, wouldn't that mean that it's a matter of biology?

    And if you are unable to choose to get it up for ol' George, then what makes you think that a flaming homosexual man can force himself to be sexually attracted to a woman? If you are personally unable to get it up for George, then it IS a matter of biology - people ARE "born that way", as Lady Gaga put it.
