The reason the churches allowed these "companionate" marriages are the same reason they ended up requiring celibacy in priests, these same sex couples had to bequeath their property to the church since no progeny would result from such marriages. Men with wives and children, couldn't leave any of THEIR property to the church either, they'd have to support their families with it. Ever with their minds on the almighty dollar, is the church.
