Don't be a fool. Civil Unions give the same rights to ruin the other half when you split as marriage does. Marriage is between one man and one woman. Pick a gay term for your lifestyle that connotates the hetero "marriage" and lobby for it. Seperate, but equal actually works in this instance.

What? Marriage is whatever a particular religious institution says it is...again, not a state's prerogative

Drew,
You would sell your soul, throw your mother under the bus, ritual sacrifice your kids, just to be PC so you wouldn't hurt one single person's little "feelings". OK, so I doubt you would really do any of that, but my point is made.

I am amazed at people that bend to any cause at the expense of the world around them. Letting your emotions run your life is non-productive.

Gay marriage or straight marriage, it still sucks and that is life.
