There is only one way children are produced and that is by having a biological mother & a father, simple facts of life I am sure you are aware of. If a same sex couple in a relationship have children that means the child's mother is absent by design & intent of the same sex relationship. Two dads leaves no room for mom. This is how it practically works out when Sally has two dads mom is relegated to a peripheral role at best and at worst once her womb is used, discarded. This whole utilitarian arraignment isn't designed to do what is best for the child, it is designed to satisfy the heterosexual procreative impulse of some gays at the expense of the child.
When the court asked the question, "How does SSM harm Traditional marriages," it was asking the wrong question. The relevant question is does SSM harm any group? The answer to that question is an obvious, "Yes." It harms children who will be deprived of their Mother for no more compelling reason than Daddy wants a more sexually satisfying life. Talk about narcissistic self-absorption! You also realize Gay men as a group exclude women as a class from their marriages, the classic definition of discrimination. Monogamy is a value men primarily acquire in a relationship with a woman. It is not a top value in the Pantheon of male sexual nature. As to commitment, fidelity, faithfulness these are not grounded in Erotic love, they are expressions of a deeper spiritual love.

Once again children get harmed by the absence of either a mother or father so the adults can pursue a more sexual fulfilling life only this time the State is celebrating it's part in establishing an affirmative policy whose effect harms children. At least with divorce the State had the moral sense to recognize it as a necessary evil, the lesser of two evils.

We live in a society that considers gender mixing, (inclusion) to be vital. We have ordered ALL our social institutions to be gender inclusive (except for when obvious physiological differences call for exclusion) Marriage has always been an institution of gender inclusion. SSM is an institution of gender exclusion and carries with it all the detrimental effects of exclusionary institutions. You would think as a society we had learned the downside of exclusion but here we are for the first time ever laying the foundation for family life to based on exclusively masculine or feminine relationships rather than the blended and complementary relationship a man & a woman form.
