    There are some couples that don't wish to have any children for lots of reasons. That makes their union no less valued/real or important.

    Yes when I married my husband after 6 years of defacto I partly married him bc he's the one I planned to have a family with. But I married him first and foremost bc I love him and we share the same values and interests.

    Marriage isn't just for procreation....

    the question is "dp you support the right for same-sex couples to marry.

    Please answer the question ... not attack or insult other members because of their answer.

    It is fine to discuss broad concepts and social issues - but please remember that others are as entitled to their opinion as you are to yours. Insulting them for it is not on.

    Interesting topic, I read
    Most replies, iv never really known what to answer. After thinking about it, legally- yeh sure, go for it.
    Me personally- I believe marriage is between God, man & woman, before they have sex and live together, therefore making it a faith/religious belief, that no, they shudnt. And a lot of other people(men & women) probably shouldn't get married either!

    I'm very happy to agree to disagree with ppl. Doesn't make
    Me think less of them for their choices, I just don't agree.

    Ok so your arguement is only that you can have babies and that a same sex couples can not? Right? It's not based on religion.

    Im not attacking you I just want to understand your POV.

I have never met two people more made for each other and I think their daughter is blessed to have two such amazing mummies. Should she have stayed with the manipulative, controlling a'hole she was with before her current relationship so she could fulfill your 'ideal' marriage?
    That would have been awesome.

    I think some people need to do a simple google of the word "marriage"... maybe even look at the history of marriage.

    It is a binding contract - that is pretty much it.

    - and THEN you can add all your personal bits and pieces to it to make it special for you...


    Humans have concealed ovulation - we don't just couple of to have se x to make babies. We have se x for satisfaction, to build relationships, to bond etc.
    Some people are born with the innate desire to do it the opposite sex, some the same sex, and others are quite happy to share the love with either.

    Just read up on the walking marriage and wow. While it wouldn't be for me, it makes a lot of sense on many levels. No divorce, no issues of property splitting, custody (as the child always stays in the woman's extended family). It means the girls don't leave the family so they can care for the elderly.

    Very interesting
