I think that the solution to the whole gay marriage issue would be to just do away with marriage completely.

Why should the government have any role in it?

If someone wants a priest/rabbi/swami whatever bless their union fine...that is a religious matter. Keep the government out of it.

Just require paternity test on all newborns to establish child support and couples can stay together or seperate as they see fit (which is pretty much how it is now anyway).

Allow anyone to name whomever they wish as "family" for purposes of inheritance, hospital visits, etc.


Make life so much easier.

nobody knows that by looking at you lol.

Ehh. I see your point but I like the idea of being married to dh. I like that other people look at us and know that we dated got married and then had children. A lot of people don't do that in that order anymore for whatever reason and there is something kind of sad about that too me. Not judging anyone else's lifestyle, its just something I personally cherish.

So you think a brother should be able to marry his sister, as long as they both consent?

Or a grandfather to marry his adult grandchild?

It is not that black and white.

 I think any consenting adult should be able to marry any other consenting adult. I don't know why this is a problem!

Gay marriage shouldn't be an issue because they are consenting adults and deserve the same rights and privileges as any other married couple. The best way to resolve it is to stop being afraid of people marrying animals if we "allow" gay couples to marry lol.

Yea that seems even simpler

Quoting wkukid:

Or they could just let anyone who wants to get married as two consenting adults do so.

I worded that wrong. I mean people that know us. Friends and family. I don't care about strangers opinions

I agree (with you statement about the mentality). I don't see this as a solution either. It makes more sense to stop trying to keep two CONSENTING ADULTS from getting married. (I had to put that disclaimer because someone always tries to twist that, and I've never understood that mentality either.)

Quoting bcoll:

That's not a sloution in my opinion.

I will never undrstand the "nobody wants to be left out so nobody should have anything" mentality.

*For the record I have no problem with gay marriage* This  is strictly an opinion on the overall idea of doing away with marriage.

I completely agree with you. Especially about the paternity tests. It would solve so many problems.

 Hey, whatever floats your boat. Are there not laws already in place to prevent such a thing from happening? I believe you are being deliberately obtuse. There are genetic reasons why a brother shouldn't marry a sister, a grandfather to marry his adult grandchild, etc. If you don't know that then Google hasn't been your friend. You know I meant that, barring a close genetic link, consenting adults should be able to marry. If you didn't know that then you are either thick or simply acting that way to take away from my point. So, yes, now that I've expanded on my original statement, it is quite black and white.
