Marriage Still Matters to Millennials

Civilization cannot survive without marriage. Wherever marriage is absent, such as our inner cities, you will see de-evolution. Nor can it survive with homo-marriage. They cannot reproduce and we will become extinct in one short lifetime. Humans do best with a mom and a dad. Science, not emotion, has proven this truth over and over.

The dumbest, least rational defense for marriage discrimination, is because a couple doesn't spontaneously conceive a child. Because there ARE no laws that do so. And further, gay people DO reproduce, and adopt and have step children. The ARE raising children. Some of whom wouldn't have survived or had a family at all were it not for their gay parents. So that particular point of argument couldn't be further from the truth and reality. And I don't know why anyone would keep doing it. Humans are ADAPTABLE. THAT is how we survive. Being rigid, clannish and without respect for individual character and capability is what's been destructive. So your 'truth', isn't. It's a small piece, not the entire of the complexity of this subject.

con't: Which only proves that someone like you who makes that defense, can only think in simplistic and unrealistic terms, not at the level of complexity and reality that actually exists. Identity is a profoundly important factor to people. Which is one reason why marriage was created. Identity of children, and lineage as well as inheritance. Stigmatizing those children without a family who'd claim them, is essentially what the anti gay are doing. A barbaric, uncivilized dispassionate throwback to those Biblical cultures who weren't compassionate or respectful of other cultures, tribes or families. Separate social status of unmarried parents for gay children only, is part of that barbaric behavior. That's not civil or progress.

I'm 56 and same sex marriage is a "New Age" concept.

The Ancient Civilizations that were close?

Ancient Greece and Rome...

Let's ask them:)

Oh, can't find them?

Gee, I wonder why?

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...
