Why don't we leave marriage to the author and creator of marriage, namely-God- remember him?. when he did the 1st wedding ceremony between Adam and Eve(not Adam and Steve), he didn't need anyone's help, and guess what- he still doesn't- the perversion of mariage is a travesty- God created marriage for procreation purposes- get it?- since two men can't have a baby, nor two women, then gay marriage is un natural, irrelevant, and immoral- i don't care how many laws they pass to try to make it right, it will never, never, never, be ok in the sight of God- the inventor, author, and creater of marrriage period!. Any "so called" minister that performs any such ceremony has to answer to God for it!

When I married my husband almost 15 years ago, I did so out of love and out of a desire to witness before God my commitment to him and his to me. The legal and tax ramifications did not enter into my head.

But for couples of the same sex, the legal and tax ramifications can be very important because their legal rights differ from those of heterosexual couples in a number of ways,...
