Flame me if you will, but I believe it is because that is the way we have been created. I know that many here disagree with this point of view, however, I believe that God ordained marriage as a completion of men and women. Not men and men, or women and women.

can we keep it to a peaceful discussion?
|In my opinion, civil marriage is a legal contract, and thus, how can you restrict what type of consenting adults can enter into a legal contract with one another?
Church marriages, on the other hand, can be anything they'd like, and churches should have the right to refuse a church wedding to anyone they don't want to marry.

|Regardless of whether or not it actually is right.|
|By the way, the government legislates morality every day: it is against the law to murder, steal, defame another's name, to molest/abuse one's children or spouse, to own another person (slavery), and to commit perjury (lie). It is absurd to say that government cannot legislate morality; if it cannot, than it has no business making or enforcing laws against the aforementioned behaviors because they are inherently moral issues.|

This is marriage pure and simple the ways its been for thousands of years....man, woman produce children, makes family. I'm trying to look more at the biological POV and what makes sense in nature for the pro-creation of the species.
