I have a buddy who is a Mets fan. He said "I'm gonna miss Shea Stadium." I said "Why? It's a goddam shithole. Maybe 2nd worst in the majors just ahead of Tropicana." He said "Yeah but it's the only shithole I've known. My dad took me to games there when I was a kid."
Do you think history and tradition was meaningful to him?
Alas, they still tore it down. Because history and tradition didn't trump moving forward.
And so is gay marriage.
I would say that you speak for a portion, but not all. Very cynical view.
I, like you, knew I was with "the one", and would have been happy married or not married. She wanted marriage, bad. And not for money - trust me on that.
There is something about the ceremony of commitment, of bringing your friends and family together and proclaiming to them that you and another person have decided to be with each other forever. It is important, and not in a monetary sort of way.
Frankly, (speaking Canadian), you're common law after 3 yrs, 1 with a child, regardless of whether you're same sex or not. You can get the doe if that's your only aim without having to go through the ceremony.
