    And that is what makes it no more than a civil union.

    Well, I have a fancy lil textbook, a credentialed and qualified instructor, and real examples stating the contrary.

    You have opinion based on wishful thinking.

    Your rant makes it no less true that many of us do feel exactly that way.

    So you can say "nobody else is going to go for it" and I can say it is a fabrication at best.

    Nope. I'm married. If I want to have sex with my dog along with my wife, have no children, live in separate states, crossdress, stay home while my wife works, or whatever other strange things you don't approve of, I'll do them and you can take a hike if you don't like it. It's my marriage, and I didn't sign anything saying I had to do it anybody's way but mine and my wife's.

    Now, if you can fathom that crazy notion, maybe you can grasp some other "radical" ideas involved in this debate.

    Okay man. I also have an instructor sitting here beside me, and I have real world examples. But sadly I have no lil textbook.

    You win.

    Makes no difference. People do many stupid things, does not make it right or a real marraige.

    So you're saying that thousands and thousands of older couples will say "gee, you're right, we have no business marrying because we aren't going to have children"? And you think the rest of us who know that someday when our spouses die, or we divorce, we might also want to marry without the intention or possibility of children?

    No. Sorry. That simply won't happen.

    Marriage is not just about children. You can say it should be, but it's not, for millions of people.

    You win.
    Another element of cultural universal is biology. Every human has the same basic biology even though there are minor variations. An African's brain works the same way as a Native 'American's brain. A Russian's muscle structure is the same design as as an Asian's.

    So to is marriage. While there are variations of marriage, such as nuclear and polygamy, they are essentially the same thing, universal in function and purpose.

    To claim "marriage is about whatever the couple wants it to be" is the same as claiming "your intestine is the center of your nerves system if you want it to be, your toes can see if you want them to."

    Sorry, my marriage is 100% real and there's not a damn thing you can do about it.

    You can still interfere with gay couples, but you can't touch us. We'll do whatever the hell we want. I know that burns you up inside, that you can't control people's lives. But you can't. I'm going to have some really weird kinky sex with my wife while watching porn, just for you.
