    the union of a man and a man is not a marriage, because marriage is the union of a man and a woman. until that definition changes, that's the way it is.

    Main Entry:
    mar·riage
    Pronunciation:
    \ˈmer-ij, ˈma-rij\
    Function:
    noun
    Etymology:
    Middle English mariage, from Anglo-French, from marier to marry
    Date:
    14th century
    1 a (1): the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law (2): the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage <same-sex marriage> b: the mutual relation of married persons : wedlock c: the institution whereby individuals are joined in a marriage
    2: an act of marrying or the rite by which the married status is effected ; especially : the wedding ceremony and attendant festivities or formalities
    3: an intimate or close union <the marriage of painting and poetry — J. T. Shawcross>


    Okay, riddle me this: what is the purpose of a marriage?

    I'll give you a hint: it relates to society as a whole on a micro level.

    I'm rather curious as to what your occupation is at this point.

    my premise is not a call for action. I like things just the way they are.

    With one little rule throw in - the man and woman had to be the same color. I conclude the definition of marriage was a little different then, still between men and women, but excluding interracial couples. Now marriage excludes homosexual couples, which is just as bad.

    Apparently, you don't. You don't like the fact that gays want to get married.

    You do realize that's how things are?

    And, in that you want to restrict it (action) as opposed to tolerate it (inaction), the burden of proof is on you.

    I take it you're used to people assuming they're wrong when they argue with you.

    I wish no one brought racial issues into this.

    You haven't answered half of my questions, M-. Giving in?

    I notice you didn't highlight the definition that negated your entire argument.

    why don't you just tell me what it is, to save time?

    Sorry mate, just trying to twist his argument - although there isn't really any need, is there, given that he can't answer a simple question.

    I like that they want to get married.

    I also like that they can't get married.

    I want to keep it the way it is (inaction) as opposed to make it legal (action).
