*i’m not trying to spark a debate. these are my own thoughts. i just find this whole questioning of gay marriage really interesting…
why exactly is it that people don’t want gay marriage? when in conversation with those who are against gay marriage i often ask them “why?” and i’ve gotten a plethora of answers from “homosexuality is a sin” to “marriage is meant to be between a man and a woman” to “gay couples are not able to conceive a child” and even going off of that “because gay people are not able to have children and our population will diminish etc, etc”
so when thinking about the children aspect, does that mean that straight couples also shouldn’t marry if they have no intention of having children? if more and more married heterosexual couples didn’t have children our population would diminish just the same, correct?
let’s think about this.
so with that argument, i say that we up the marriage requirements to “must have children” and if the couple hasn’t had children within let’s say, 5 years, then their marriage license will get revoked. it’s simple logic, isn’t it?
