So, your point is that we should emulate communist countries? How about that crazy idea of freedom? If two grown people want to get married, it is not my business that they do. It is not the state's business either. And don't compare it to some heinous crime like murder. It is two people (and, no, I would not object to more than two as I don't object to other partnerships and associations) who want to be a couple and want to use a word that is symbolic of love and committment. How that is so terrible for some other people is difficult for me to understand.
