    Does Same Sex Marriage promote family?

    Yes or no, and explain your answer.

    I say yes, SSM promotes family just like opposite sex marriage.

    Stability and benefits to raise children, of course it promotes family.

    Re: Does Same Sex Marriage promote family?

    I'm a little perplexed by the wording. I don't actually think any marriage as such "promotes family." It doesn't promote anything, except two people decided for emotional and/or financial reasons that they want to spend a portion of their lives together. (I'd say their entire lives, but with the divorce rate at 50% that makes me sound a bit clueless!) Children actually promote family, in my view.

    If I understand what you actually mean, the opposite of what you're asking would be "Does SSM degrade or harm family?" Since my answer to that question would be "no", I suspect my answer to your question would be "yes."

    Or something.

    I wish there was an ‘other’ choice but, oh well.
    I say, heterosexual or homosexual marriage does not promote family by itself but, that does not take away from the social union created by marriage.

    Re: Does Same Sex Marriage promote family?

    Yes it does. I am a married lesbian. My wife and I have two adopted children we have one that she is the birth mother of and I am the biological mother. At the moment she is pregnant with her own egg. I am pregnant for only a few days and i will be the birth mother and she will be the biological mother. Yes it promotes family.
    The flame that is between us could set every soul on fire. I would love to take that heat and let's fill the whole world with desire.

    No.

    You have to pull teeth to get pro-SSM to even mention anyone other than the "consenting adults" on the "strictly legal constract". SSM doesn't give a **** about family. They never did, they never will. The world has more important things to worry about then if some dude can put some other dude on his insurance plan.

    No, you're a "strictly legal contracted" woman. And she's not your 'wife', she's your "partner". This is the vocabulary your side has presented, and is one way we know that pro-SSM is not about the family. You're about just whatever feels good, whatever that may be. In your case, specifically, at best you're the broken watch.

    SSM harms the family and society by condoning if not perpetuating the 50% divorce rate and juvenile crime rate.

    It's hilarious when people try and tell me what I really think. They never fail to get it completely wrong. Jerry once again proves the rule. Nothing remotely like the honest truth, and he even knows better.

    It has exactly nothing to do with either.
