WHY is there such a push to redefine marriage? Not because they want societal recognition (civil unions are recognized in many states/countries) but because of the financial benefits (inheritance) now enjoyed by married couples. Once marriage is redefined, where does it stop? If a person can marry another of the same sex, why can’t they also marry a sibling, or a pet, or their I-pad? For avoiding inheritance taxes, parents could marry their children, or a man could marry hundreds of wives who would all be eligible for Social Security benefits when he passes away.
