That's not true, they want to get married because they're in loving relationships. A rational human being should look at the situation, determine the consequences, and make a decision. There is no downfall to gays getting married. Nobody's current marriage is any different, and more people are happy.

Mike, you agree that sibling and polygamous marriages have issues and shouldn't be allowed. You see no problem with gay marriage, in a vacuum. Can't we be grown-ups and make grown-up decisions? Allow gay marriage, and recognize the flaws of sibling and polygamous marriages and don't allow them.
Tec, I'm confident gays don't want to get married for the sake of "political correctness." They want to get married because they're in a relationship with someone they love, and want to get married just like anyone else.
You said there were issues with polygamists marrying. There are none with homosexuals marrying.
Who are bisexuals marrying? Huh?
You said there were issues with polygymists getting married. When that situation rises, we'll deal with it the same way. If there are issues, maybe we say no to that.
I dare say, since we're talking about it, that some folks see a downfall to SS marriage.
I think the reasons I'm seeing on this board are the happy, PC reasons to allow SS marriage. "Makes more people happy, they're in love, they want equality, they're not affecting you, they're not infringing on anyone else's rights".
Pretty sure that's the point tec is trying to make. None of those are "good" reasons. And I don't think tec's "traditional marriage" for preventing it is good either.
