    Go to church, have your wedding, have your party, Why on earth get the government involved ?
    Because the federal government does not recognize same sex marriage and sees couples as "just friends" when, in fact, its deeper then that. There are over 1000 benefits, whether good or not, the federal government with holds.

    Idk if you know about the case in that has gone to supreme court but I'll cliff note it for you. Basically this woman's spouse passes away after 45 years of being together and legally married in the state of NY (their home state). Her spouse passes and leaves her the estate. That's well and good, except she was made to pay $360,000 of taxes on the property. If her spouse was a man the total of taxes she would of had to pay is $0. Fair? I think not.

    Sure, there are down points to marriage but that's why you should pick your partner CAREFULLY no matter what sexual orientation you are.

    And one more thing, although a church might preform a same-sex wedding its not recognize within the entire institution. Recognition by the church would be great, but that's a whole 'bother battle.

    If a person undergoes a sex change, that is recognized and the person is issued a new birth certificate. This means that with all same sex partners, one needs to have a sex change in order to be recognized under the law.

    ...then they will be opposite sex partners.

    Gay/lesbian don't want to be the opposite sex. I'm a woman who loves other women. Not a man hater or a man wanna be, just a lesbian. I would NEVER want to be a man and I would certainly struggle is my partner wanted a sex change.

    Faceman, have you ever wondered why those homosexuals you've know didn't seem to have any religious interest? Because there is always some a**hole who will make snide remarks. So by avoiding the topic and not attending church they save themselves a lot of grief. Has anyone ever wondered what it is like to be a kid knowing you are different and your parents are anti gay.No communication there so the child will grow up feeling very much alone.

    On the topic of the impact of growing up in a same-sex parent household on kids, my father is on wife #3 and my mother is looking for a husband of the same iteration. I'd say the odds of the dynamics of a married gay couple doing any more "damage" to a kid than was done to me or many kids similarly situated is unlikely. If people are so concerned about the impact on children of growing up in a same-sex parent household, championing or at least maintaining an accepting, live and let live attitude, such that these kids wouldn't have to grow up in a society that made them feel like outcasts or oddities, would go a long way toward reducing any such impact.

    My brother-in-law is gay. He's a great guy. He's great with my girls - loves 'em to death. I wouldn't see him denied the right to have kids of his own just because he was born attracted to a different type of consenting adult, and I wouldn't see him denied the right to marry for that reason, either, especially if he can offer a loving, stable home, which is apparently becoming increasingly rare for children these days.

    As for the sanctity of the institution of marriage, I think heterosexuals have already done too much damage to it for homosexuals to have much impact at this point.

    For goodness sake, let 'em drink from the same water fountain, already.

    Slide I was just pointing out the stupidity of the laws, that in order that your relationship with another woman be recognized one of you would have to undergo surgery. The laws condone genital mutilation, oh, my mistake, a sex change.

    If both names had been on the estate she would have gotten it all without taxes. Also each should will their half to the other so family can't step in. No marriage is need for those things.
