    Any two consenting heterosexual people of age can get married. What I wonder is that since a man can marry a woman why can not a woman marry a womaan? It seems like gender discrimination to me.

    Both. If a man can marry a woman why can not a woman......and if a woman can marry a man why can not a man marry a man? It is because of gender.

    No they aren't. A man can do woman can not do and vice versa. If they were being treated equally both being equally a woman could do what a man does and vice versa.

    Wrong.

    Brother's can't marry sisters, or first cusins, or parents...etc, etc, ad nausium.

    A hetero can not marry another hetero of the same gender.

    Your premis is conclusivly false.

    Your position is born out of grose ignorence.

    The state has not interest in gay couples because those couples, typicly, will not be producing healthy little tax payers.

    It's that simple.

    Heteros do not have any such 'right to marry whomever they choose'.

    Yes, they are.

    Each is under the same restriction that the other is.

    That's equality.

    He can marry someone of the opposite gender just as she can.

    That's equality.

    They can each do what the other can do.
