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.

You could still do all of that, it just wouldn't be government sanctioned.

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




Quoting spooky415:

nobody knows that by looking at you lol.






Quoting Hayleysmom88:

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.

 This. I vote this.

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

I suppose. I am not very liberal......at all. I like it the way it is. Just a personal preference.
