    As to the tax thing. Totally bogus if the govt pays you to get married I want my $$$$. Fact is they don't so it is a moot point.
    If you are talking about tax benefits where married couples get to keep more of their own $$$ that is different and please explain how SSM should be treated differently than non SSM. If you have a problem with all marriage getting tax benefits that is fine but not how it works though it has nothing to do with SSM.

    So you think gays are getting married to rob the system? And by robbing I mean doing the EXACT same thing you are?

    "same as". Everyone gets it or no one gets it. You don't get to decide who does or doesn't get a tax break based on how you personally feel about them.

    What don't they do? No spouse splitting in your part of the wilderness? No reduced cost of insurance for spouses?

    Yes. I think you are right. If we want ssm, we get rid of all government benefits for marriages. Then it is fine by me.

    Most people don't marry to "rob the system", I should think.

    What is "the EXACT same thing" I am doing?

    So no SSM marriage tax status is fine, with SSM it must all disappear?

    If you're married, you're getting 'benefits', such as tax exemptions. Is that why you got married? Why would you be so spiteful to say that gays only get married for money?

    You misunderstand. My family has been very open to gays since the beginning of the 20th century. I have very good friends who are gay. I do not want to participate. But they like it, I find it fine.

    I do not think that others should pay them, however, for their sex. I do not think we should be giving traditional married couples tax and other breaks unless they are doing something valuable for society.

    By the way. When you say "They are wrong", what you mean, I hope, is that you think they are wrong. Much like they think you to be wrong.
