If two gay men are allowed to marry, why not two straight women?

    In order to take advantage of the tax code, inheritance, health insurance benefits, etc. Do proponents of gay marriage also support the "right" of straight people, who may not even live in the same state or even know each other well, to marry each other specifically to avail themselves of the incidents of marriage?

    You are truly dedicated to your vendetta against gays, aren't you?

    I have no interest what goes on in their bedroom.

    Do you care if a heterosexual couple marries just for the tax break?

    I don't believe two straight women would do something so stupid as to marry each other. That would be a really queer thing to do.

    Why do you say this? because I expose a reasonable by-product of changing the definition of marriage?

    why not? why wouldn't two elderly women avail themselves of the incidences of marriage, with no interest in actually living as a married couple? I can think of a variety of common circumstances where such a move would be very beneficial. Even if that is not the type of arrangement our marital laws are intended to promote.

    That is a separate issue, and laws likely vary from state to state.
