indeed. there are numerous financial benefits, not to mention societal respect, that flow to married couples from the government.

please, show me the "harm" that would be done if i married my current boyfriend. demonstrate that for me. i want flow charts. statistics. cited sources.

do you view fertile couples who choose not to have children as unworthy of the title of "married" couple?

because unless you do, you're going to have to find another argument.

I think it's time to give this thread an extended holiday break. It's really just going in circles at this point and, worse, it's dominating the forum to the point of risking reducing some participants to their stance on this particular topic so far as some others are concerned. Ultimately these issues aren't going to be resolved here; they're well worth discussing, but in context it's not worth 24 pages of wound-salting stalemate.

And if we could avoid transplanting this discussion to other threads via sarcastic allusions and snowballing responses to them, that'd be just ducky too.

Is a temporary truce in the interests of civility too much to ask for?
