And that's a basic biological PRINCIPLE.

I don't think biology is very cut-and-dry about the issue.
In fact, it's very, very messy.

However - on average, and in general... you certainly have a point. Man and woman go together on a certain biological principle.
The problem is... this principle has nothing to do with marriage.

Marriage is about love.
And love is subjective.
Different people love different people for different reasons.

Saying people's subjective view on love should adhere to some biological principle is equivalent to saying people's subjective view on love should adhere to some physics principle.

Can you imagine claiming people have to get married depending on fitting into a certain complementary weight range? It's silly.
Just as silly as claiming people have to get married depending on fitting into a certain biological ability range.

There are many principles.
Pretty much all of them have nothing to do with marriage because they have nothing to do with love.

Any principle not dealing with love has no place in claiming anything about marriage.

No, in the history of the human race marriage is NOT about love.

Who cares about history?
Do you think marriage should be about love or not?

if it were I guess parents could marry children and we could all marry our dogs and cats.

A marriage consists of at least 2 beings.
For the marriage to be about love, both beings have to consent to getting married.
Children cannot consent.
Dogs and cats cannot consent.

Therefore - you are wrong, no marriage "based on love" involves children or dogs or cats.
Try again.

No it is not about love...

Yes, it is.
Love is the only thing marriage should be based on. Why would anything else matter?

it's about the bioloigical principle I'm talking about

No, it's not.
Why should anything not based on love be considered concerning a marriage?
We also don't base marriages on the engineering principle that loads must be supported.

Just because you can identify a principle doesn't mean it applies to marriage.
Try again.

Re: and another thing
Faith writes:

So we need a charade of marriage to validate a charade of parenthood by a charade of man and wife enacted by a gay couple? And PC also requires us to put on a pretense of seriousness about all this pretense too.

What part of basing a marriage on love do you think is a charade?

You seem to be avoiding this point - that marriage is based on love.
Regardless of whether the pair getting married are straight or gay - the marriage is equally based on love.

If you can't identify a part of love that is "a charade" then your entire argument falls to pieces and is rightfully ignored.
