My spouse will leave me.
I'll have come up with a reason to say "no".
My son's special friend would be my son-in-law.
I could never again rent a honeymoon suite in a hotel.
I won't be, I'm not getting married.
I won't be, I'm already married to the opposite sex.
My position on gay marriage is a bit complex, so I'll forgive your misinterpretation of it.Finally, its juvenile that some people would want to do away with legal marriage recognition simply because a group they don't agree with would get that recognition.
As a personal matter, I don't care about gay marriage at all. If gays recieved the "right" to marry I wouldn't even think twice about it - it doesn't mean a damn thing to me. However, I take serious issue with the legal reasoning employed by people on both sides of the argument - particularly proponents of gay marriage.
Basically, my involvement in these arguments is nothing more than an attempt to maintain the integrity of Constitutional law and force certain people to confront their inconsistency in the application of that law.
Most likely but this does not mean I'm wrong.Moreover, its never going to happen anyway.

Instead of sanctioning and institutionalizing marriage, the government should simply enforce contracts; the social meaning of said contract should be a private matter.
