Marriage can be redefined
To the person that wrote marriage can’t be redefined. So, from your letter, marriage is all about procreation. So, if a couple can’t have children, they cannot be married, correct? So, if a couple chooses not to have children they cannot be married, correct?
If a man has had a vasectomy he cannot get married, correct? If a woman has had a hysterectomy she cannot get married, correct?
Those who choose to help unfortunate children and choose to adopt should not get married because they are not procreating, correct? A paraplegic that cannot have children cannot get married, correct?
Male couples and female couples can raise great children. It’s what comes from the heart and soul, not from a gene pool.
Marriage is about love, not procreation. It is time to get your head out of the sand.
This is 2013! Unbelievable! Your opinion negates all of the above unions of these people.
