    joke Re: How will gay marriage affect your marriage?

    Gay marriages will cause the very fabric of reality to unravel.

    Oh.. yeah and all that other stuff people say.

    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    If that were true, then all partners who have no children would be denied marriage licenses.

    Try again.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I've always been taught that societal expectation is to get married first and then to have children-- and in any case, even a couple of demonstrable infertility has the capacity to adopt children.

    Notably, however, adoption agencies consider the issue of whether or not the prospective are parents are already married in making any determinations of their suitability to raise a child.

    That doesn't change the fact that people who have no interest in ever adopting children can still get married. People who go their entire lives without having children can still be married. In fact, gay couples can adopt children. So again, where is the impetus for not allowing gays to marry again?

    Actually, in most states, you can adopt children whether or not you're married, so long as you can otherwise provide for children.

    I'm not opposed to homosexual couples getting married. In fact, I encourage it, especially if they're planning on raising children.
