    Got a couple questions for ya.

    Do you support Incestuous adult relationships and think they have the right to marry?

    Do you support multiple partners and think they all have the right to get married?

    supporting is one thing...thinking they should be allowed to marry is another thing...

    i have no probems with adults marrying period....as far as multiple marriages that is still done ...i think the legal aspects and entanglements will always make it too complex for a 'legal' mutiple wedding. plus if you legally marriage more than one spouse the law becomes involved....it is still an illegal act to have more than one spouse...most people i know with multiple spouses just do a lot of paper work to take care of their spouses.

    i guess i should clarify.

    i don't support them, but i wouldn't actively oppose them, either.

    i like to mind my own business about things like that, mostly.

    IMO, any two consenting adults should be able to enter a contract that benefits them in the same way as a traditional marriage benefits me.

    The government shouldn't be involved in the sex lives of consenting adults.

    But that is not marriage... that is simply a legal contract ensuring things such as inheritance, power of attorney in times of injury or emergency, joint tax return, etc....

    But when 'civil unions' that do not equal marriage are brought up as alternatives, the majority of the 'gay marriage' supporters reject this

    As for the sex lives part.. again that leaves out things that should be illegal such as incest... and as for gay marriage, you currently do not see the government getting involved with the sex lives part or stopping the sex lives part.. but you do see people trying to keep government out of redefining the long held definition of the institution of marriage

    There are no civil unions that currently receive the same benefits that traditionally married couples receive.

    The word marriage should be bestowed by a private organization, not the government.

    Did not say that there were.... but said when that option is brought up, it is regularly rejected by 'gay marriage' supporters...

    And I have stated so many times that the government should not redefine marriage and should only be dealing with the recognition of legal domiciled family partners in terms of census, taxation, inheritance, power of attorney, etc as mentioned above

    The reason it is rejected by gay marriage supporters is because civil unions do not give gay couples the same benefits that married couples receive.

    I don't understand why this is so difficult for you to understand.
