What is marriage? - Restso

Through all of this it would seem that there is no definition of marriage beyond the legal one. No other aspect we discussed can be considered inseparable from marriage. Love occurs without marriage and marriage without love. Reproduction and child rearing as well occur without marriage and vice versa. If two people are able to provide a safe and loving home for a child, we as a society should be happy that someone will love this child, that this child will have a place to live and food to eat. Society is not based on male/female pairings as much as it's based on individuals who see themselves as part of a larger community, people who love, people who give, people who work to make the world a better place. @!$%#ty things happen daily and with all the hate, rape, murder, starvation, poverty and violence in the world, if two people wish to define their relationship as marriage, why should we stop them?
