    Are you really missing that a homosexual brother and sister might not want to get married in the first place, you know, being of opposite sexes and all?

    But if they want to marry, what is the problem? Some kind of stone age taboo?

    You asked "why not?".
    That they are homosexuals of opposite sexes would be a reason (they might not seek marriage in the first place).
    The "beard" thing is common enough and lends something to VNs observation i guess.

    I am a heterosexual man. I'm also prevented from marrying a man. Where's the discrimination?

    2. What is the definition of marriage?

    answer:
    It depends upon who you ask but if we were to take this out of the religious context then it's a legal binding between two people as acknowledge by a specific community.

    Now if we were to agree that a marriage between two people of the same sex is legal then are we regulated to define that because, as it stands, we find one person marrying a couple, and couples marrying a couples. Yes, we need to truly define this law. If we were to agree to at least one person to one person then to what advantage does the community benefit from this marriage? An unusual question? No, a lot of marriages we performed as a union between two families. ....
    Just a quick addition.

    The law change was about changing the legal definiton of "marriage".Mostly it was about affording gay couples the same rights as non gay couples since there was already the Civil Union avenue for gay couples.

    For example. If a gay couple had children and one of couple were to pass away then the remaining partner wasn't able to adopt or be legally responsible for the children because the system didn't recognise them as the other parent because they weren't "married". That kind of thing has been changed. It has the added advantage of eliminating further walls of the "Us/Them" type.

    Actually we investigated that, and a couple does not have to be married, homosexual or other wise for this to happen. These are some of my arguments and thank you for actually addressing my original discussion in the matter.

    The answer is "no, probably not," but this article raises a whole host of interesting reasons to allow gay marriage that don't often come up in the US debates on the topic:

    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.
