Letter: Procreation and marriage

Published: Wednesday, Jan. 8 2014 12:00 a.m. MST

I have a few simple questions in response to Ruel Clark’s implication ("Population depletion," Jan. 5) that allowing gay marriage will cause world population levels to fall: Is marriage a precondition for procreation, biologically speaking? Is having children the sole reason couples marry? Are alternative methods of conception unavailable to homosexual couples?
