    At least I know everyone will read my post now. :badgrin:

    Here are some questions I have.

    1. What role, if any, should sex play in the government? Specifically, why should we get tax perks and certain privlidges just because of sexual unions?

    2. Should sexual relations imply obligations legally of any kind? Should a spouse be allowed, for example, to simply leave all of their estate to someone other than their sexual partner, or should the fact that two people had sex together for a specified time make them legally obligated to get a cut?

    3. Why buy a marriage license? Why should we pay?

    4. Should those who are monogomous be allowed to discriminate against those who are not by having special government privlidges over them?

    5. What about asexual people? Shouldn't they have the same rights as those who are sexually active? For example, if two people live together and are the best of friends but don't have sex together, why is it they can't file jointly with taxes and provide the same privlidges those that have sex have?

    You're beginning with the faulty assumption that sex is the only reason people get married, that it's little more than prostitution by contract.

    That's a rather narrow and dim view of marriage. In spite of the fact that it is that for too many people (see: divorce rate), that doesn't negate the fact that marriage is much, much more than just a deal for lifetime sex.

    There is no reason why the government can't control sex the way they control health care, soda pop or anything else.

    Exactly. Why does a man have to have anal with his buddy just to get married? Why does he have to get married? Contract benefits should have nothing to do with what a man does with his dick or what a woman does with her fist.:lol::lol::lol:

    Dude people who dont have sex can get married.

    All they need to do is just agree on how to live and they can get married.

    Its as if you think there will be someone asking you about sex before you get married.


    ANY Two people should be able to get married for what ever reasons they wish to.

    That is why gay marriage is a civil rights issue
