What is your definition of marriage itself? Let's compare definitions to discuss marriage equality.


I think there's a confusion regarding the definition of marriage because there are different assumptions about what marriage is on both sides of the marriage equality issue and people aren't bothering to compare definitions, just arguing about who gets to be married. Please define marriage, leaving out the genders of people involved and just describing what the marriage relationship is supposed to be for. I think we'll see some very different answers. I define marriage as a loving commitment between two adults, intended to form a family of two or more. Image: Paul Fris freeimages.com

    The idea is to get different definitions so there are no wrong answers. A bit of a longer explanation of what that entails and specifically means to you would be nice, but it isn't necessary. Thanks for your answer.

    So your definition of marriage is "a man and a woman?" I don't really understand how that is a definition of a relationship. It's just the genders of two people. What is their relationship?
