MORE ON GAY MARRIAGE

Vote must be over by now. Thought about how daft it all is. My wife and I know two men who lived together for a time. I imagined that they had gone through a religious ceremony and were officially married. I imagined that they then came to dinner and said to my wife and I, “We have just got married and now we are exactly the same as you.” But around the dinner table there would still be three men and one woman. Crazy. You can’t make two different things the same by giving them the same name. I believe that being legally married will give same sex couples certain securities internationally. That seems OK to me, but why pretend that two things are the same when they are clearly not? There must be a more honest way to resolve the issue.
