As usual, the libs are trying to define the arguement based on false assumptions. 1. Marriage is primarily for the benefit of the adults. 2. Marriage is a right, not a privledge. 3. More than half of the married couples end up divorced. simply not true 4. Kids can be raised just as well by homosexual parents, as heterosexual. Truth is, we simply dont know. So, are we to use our kids as guina pigs to find out? I think not. IF the institution of marriage is in such bad shape, why such the passion and insistence that same gender marriage be legalized? If we, as a society, took kids and raised them on a farm, kind of like a communal thing, then most of us could care less who would get married. Marriage is an institution, which is a privledge, NOT A RIGHT, to promote healthier enviorments for kids to grow up in. WHen marriages break up, what is the most hotly contested issue? Custody of the kids. Marriages without kids, celebs aside, usually go fairly uncontested, when compared to those with custody issues. Peoples dreams, "To get married and start a family", not just "to get married"
