    You are in left field, My point is that a gay marriage cannot produce children without artificial means. That means they would die out in 1 generation.
    I did not mean that having children was a prerequisite for marriage.

    It's still odd, to me. If gay couples die out, there are many other people in the world - gay and straight - to take their place. The world is not suddenly going to depopulate. My parents couldn't have children without "artificial means" either (I was adopted), and they were happily married for 53 years.

    All valid, I am old fashioned, marriage betwen man and woman, wether old, non fertile or just dont want kids, is fine. Any thing that hastens societies downfall, I am against.

    I think that really is what it boils down to, all smokescreens about children notwithstanding; many straight people just don't want gays to get married, because they think it's icky.

    That's always amazed me as well and I, having worked in Saudi for a number of years, have known lots of men with more than one. But, on the other hand, I can't figure out why a man would want even one! :eek: :D

    That's the myth at least. However, zero wives offer the potential for much more variety than simply 2 - 4.

    So - again, what effect, exactly, will these marriages have on you and yours?

    Personally (at the risk of looking like Iím playing both sides of the coin), as long as I donít have to witness two 70ish ladies tongue-kissing, it all means nothing to me. Now two 20ish yumsters is another issue. ;)
