Did not our hunter-gathers ancestors practice marriage before there was civilzation?

What are you talking about? Mating, isn't marriage. It's pair bonding through sexual instinct. There's a difference. Marriage, is a formal ceremonial ritual that solemnizes the couple as primary kin, from whose progeny can be identified. Typically as the property of the male. People are forgetting that marriage has had many meanings and definitions, least of which were so wonderful for the female or the children. Making having sex, and sex organs sound like a moral calling is ridiculous. That says nothing about treating one's mate with any love, respect or equity.

du2,

Ever look at yourself in the mirror?

You are a product of marriage, parents , grandparents great grandparents etc.

Supporting marriage is not a popular stance for millennials to take today.

If one is under 30 and a supporter of natural marriage, automatically they are labeled a “bigot,” “homophobe” or “fascist.”

Many in our generation--thanks to the influence of Hollywood and pop culture--support the idea of “marriage equality.” Indeed, this is touted as the hip thing to do. If millennials do not get on the bandwagon, they will be ostracized by their peers.

This begs the question: what happened to respecting difference of opinion, oh-so tolerant crowd?

Although public opinion might favor the “marriage equality” view...
