Hoorah for Minnesota!I can't wait for the Supreme Court
decisions in June. :-)@Chris B --"And REMEMBER, as
my liberal friends always tell me on these boards, marriage has NOTHING TO DO
WITH SEX."Once again, Chris, this simply isn't true. Please
at least TRY to tell the truth when you post a comment.As many
people HAVE told you before, marriage is about a lot of things. It's about
love, and commitment, and stability, and home-building, and family, and raising
children together, and all *sorts* of things -- yes, including, but not limited
to, sex. You can't narrow it down to just one single thing or another."Why can't two siblings/family members be married then?"One reason is that there's a whooooooole lot of anti-incest laws
preventing it. If you really want to try changing those laws, have at it. That
should only take you a few hundred years or so.But first you'll
have to find sibling/family couples that are actually *interested* in getting
married, so that they can file the lawsuits. I'm betting
you'll have an awfully hard time coming up with many of those.
Chris B.Two straight siblings cannot marry for the same reason that
two gay siblings cannot marry.When you compare apples to apples then
you have an argument --- until then - find out why some states allow straight
first cousins to marry.
@chris bIf you have a valid argument then please make it based on the
merits of that argument if you want to talk about sibling marriage’s and
argue its merits then may I suggest you write a letter to the editor discussing
it merits or lack thereof rather then trying to place people on the defensive
with erronious arguments.
Besides just being a silly question with more yelling (capital letters) then
actually insight, you think you've got a new approach from your radio
entertainers?How many siblings have asked for the right to be
married to another sibling for any reason? I'll wait.As a
sibling you aren't being kept out of hospital rooms of the one you love
because your not related. If you're the only other relative you can also
inherit, and make decisions for a sibling.We should at least give
people who are in love the same treatment as a sibling.Bigotry is
the only defense.
Question:Why can't two siblings be allowed to marry?
Isn't that discrimination?And REMEMBER, as my liberal friends
always tell me on these boards, marriage has NOTHING TO DO WITH SEX.That is what I'm told over and over and over. It is about
love and commitment.Please keep that in mind when answering.
NOTHING TO DO WITH SEX.Besides, sex happens outside of marriage in
most relationships and there are marriages without sex.So again,
marriage has NOTHING TO DO WITH SEX.I ask again:Why
can't two siblings/family members be married then?Is that not
