The reason that the law and society generally has supported and benefitted marriage is because of the unique procreative potential of a man and a woman. It is a rare marriage-related law that does not have a connection to that unique capacity. Same-sex couples cannot procreate, and when they do introduce a child to their relationship (by contracting for all or part of a human) then they intentionally deny the child either a mother or a father--and every child should have the right to his or her natural parents. It is no violation of "equal rights" to treat different things differently--and two guys or two girls together is very different than a man and a woman together.
