    As for your question, I would have no problem with that.
    You would have people tested for fertility before they could marry?

    No it is not. The state also has an interest in encouraging stability as well as the transference of property and a number of other issues.

    So why are you so caught up in the legal codification of the terms?

    There is a difference as I pointed out earlier in this thread. I am talking about purely under the law.

    Now I ask again...

    If you get everything by law in a civil union, what do gay couples have to gain by trying to redefine what marriage is?

    People for the longest time did have to take blood tests before getting married. So no, not really.

    You said because gays can not procreate. So when heterosexuals that can not procreate are barred from state recognition you might have a point. In the mean time......you have to come up with a better reason.

    Because I see marriage as between a man and a woman as I am a Christian. I don't think the government should really be involved at all to be honest. The churches should be allowed to marry who they want and then the state can take it from there.

    No I did not. I said the state would have no real interest in it. Huge difference.

    That is not my reason and you are at this point lying about what I said.

    And you are still avoiding my question, I wonder why?

    PS I already said I would not have a problem with couples who cannot reproduce not getting married. So you have no excuse to doge anymore.

    Just be honest.

    That is fine with me.

    There are so many issues involved it is next to impossible not to have the state involved. Personally I think the state should drop the word marriage all together.
