    Well that might have been true in 1996 But these days in several States as well as countries there is also same sex marriage

    Here is what MW has to say today:

    1
    a (1) : the state of being united to a person of the opposite sex as husband or wife in a consensual and contractual relationship recognized by law (2) : the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage <same-sex marriage>

    Meaningless
    100% meaningless to be exact
    First who said I was talking about you? guilt? I was speaking in general.
    2ndly you could be a 50 year vet and still only care about yourself and not others. Being a military man is RESPECTABLE. Stereotypically I hold military men and woman in high regard but at the end of the day they are humans and they have their mix of geniuses/retards, selfless/selfish, tolerant/bigots, caring/assholes just like civilians. Another non black white issue, its grey just like reality. Vet doesnt not = good person. It very well could = bad person.

    So keep saying your a vet like it proves something, it doesnt, all it means is exactly what the term definition is, you served.


    Nope, not mine, not societies, just yours.
    What it is, is reality, EVERYTHING is circumstantial.

    Let me know when you have something on topic to debate.
    I accept your admission of defeat.

    The other LAW DICTIONARYS are not from 96, they are recent as the definition in the US as in Federal Government has not changed.

    Thanks for playing.

    Please point out something you posted that was other than opinion and throwing adhomonyms at anyone that disagrees with your opinion? It was nothing to respond to.

    I guess a "food night" could be fun, LMAO!

    The law dictionary's as I stated from the beginning doesn't agree with your assessment and flat out says you are wrong. You were wrong then and you are wrong now. You mite want to write to the editor or something, lol.

    PS the Feds started defining marriage as soon as they started giving Federal money for benefits etc. So wrong again.

    Well you know as well as I do State recognition of same sex marriage is legal in some States now.

    And the last I checked it was the States not the feds that issue marriage licenses.
