Marriage is only sacred between the two that got married and only remains as sacred as they keep it. Just like you admit, the fact that some abuse it, doesn't mean my marriage is less sacred. The same goes for if two men or two women got married the sacredness of my own isn't effected.

Take a look at your post and the inconsistancies and maybe you'll understand that.
Get out of my head BVS!

My point is, it IS still sacred, and will always be, because it is that beautiful eternal promise that 2 people want to share with one another. It is just those 2 people, no other human being in the outside world is in this marriage. Drunken fuckwits abuse it, but does that at all cheapen your bond? Of course not. So what if drunken fuckwits, homosexual couples, or anyone else marry. All that matters is your love for that other person. That is what the marriage is about anyway.

It does not lose it's purpose or beauty.
But then again, removing any discrimination from marriage and just using the exclusive criteria of LOVE, and you're opening pandoras box. Animal marraiges, brother-sister marriages, brother-brother marraiges, you name it. Where do we stop?

Are you implying that brother-sister marriages should be legistlated and you don't have any moral scruple with that?

Oh geez, you know animals don't have the same rights humans do. Some people even eat them so I don't even think that is even an issue here.

As for the siblings...I'm not talking about that kind of love. That is unrelated too.

Perhaps the animal marriage is pushing it a bit far.
Imagine a brother and sister which do both consent or a brother/brother. They both love eachother very much, what's wrong with them becoming married?

This bigot is going to study for his engineering exams and try to segregate the error feedback loop from the rest of the transfer function so we can get a stable transient response from the system.

You have a lot more self control than I do. I've been neglecting my studies too, but this thread has been so addicting. Perhaps I should get on that.

Look forward to continuing this discussion some other time! Good luck on your exams!

It may be useless to engage in a dual of wits with an unarmed man.

If we want to talk about "traditional society structures," prehistoric tribal society was matriarchal (admired for their childbearing powers), homosexuals were in a mystical priestly class (whose same-sex attractions were seen as special gifts from the gods), and heterosexual men were little more than worker bees.

Ah...the good old days.

No, I'm saying legislation needs logic, reasoning, it needs to serve the greater good...we don't base it on something one religion may say or some ICK FACTOR.

How would you force the couple not to have kids?

Show me a brother that wants to marry his brother, just one...

Does that require logic or reasoning?
