Martinsburg, WV – It seems many traditional marriage advocates don’t know why they support traditional marriage other than it’s what they’ve always supported. They can’t tell you why, unless it is a religious belief, and don’t have a clue as to how legalizing same-sex “marriage” will affect their own marriage; or society in general. This is an unfortunate reality that often causes confusion and debate in the absence of clearly communicated truth.
Think about it. How would you answer if someone asked you how legalizing same-sex “marriage” would affect your own marriage? Maybe I can share some thoughts that will provide insight to the answer of this question.
One of the biggest problems with legalizing same-sex “marriage” is that it opens the door to a whole “menu” of possible options for legalized relationships. This is presented in a recent article featuring the comments of a number of high profile law professors and journalists.
One Columbia Law Professor said she didn’t want to marry her longtime lesbian partner and that “marriage ought to be one choice in a menu of options by which relationships can be recognized and gain security.”
