There's no reason to care about your relationship if you aren't raising children whether you're gay or straight, living together or not. Go live with whomever you want. Have your life and I hope you live a good one. The legal buffs are for couples raising children, because raising children is the State's interest in promoting a relationship. Marriage is not for heteros looking for a tax brake, it's not for gays looking for social validation of their identity.
Gays don't make their movement about children. They make it about rights, etc, so there is no reason to care about gay marriage.

In the UK we have had civil partnerships for a while. I strongly believe that as long as no one is being hurt, it is not up to the state to regulate how people choose to live their lives.
As I said it is purely a semantic and religious argument for me. Nothing at all to do with equal anything except under the law. As long as they get equal treatment under the law, I don't care what they call it as long as it is not marriage.
No Lives Matter
Why do you make this ridiculous argument? If you don't like the idea of gay marriage, then just say so. Don't try to justify it with ridiculous reasoning that even you don't believe.
your view on what makes a marriage is strictly only an opinion since same sex couples got married as far back as rome. I do dissagree about not couling it marriage though, no need to change the name if its the same thing.
secondly marriages has NOTHING to do with private institutions unless the people getting married want it to. A magistrate, judge, or even somebody with a license can marry people.
also let me be clear about the private institution thing, i would never support "forcing" and "private" institution to marry ANYBODY they didnt want too. People think this will happen but it wont and quite frankly it someone could "try" it now if they were straight, gay would have nothing to do with it
