But there are restrictions on which man/woman you can marry, right?
What does that even mean???
You said marriage is restricted in other ways. I asked how and why?
Here's an example:
You can't marry a seven year old. Why? Children (with some exceptions) can't contract. It's presumed by the law that they don't have the ability to navigate adult decisions. The purpose of this law is to protect children.
Gays can't get married. Why?_____________. The purpose of this law is to__________.
You can't fill those blanks in because an answer doesn't exist.
