But you forget one of the best things about 'official' marriage, at least in Texas, that everything that is the husbands is 50% the wife's and vise versa. Meaning filing for injured spouse on taxes gets us back half of his income tax rebate. lol
My husband and I were married by the justice of the peace where no mention of God was heard.
But all in all, I think Homosexual Couples should have equal rights when it comes to the whole marriage thing. I understand that they want the state and federal governments to acknowledge that their spouse will get their social security after they die, be covered by spousal benefits, and get deductions on their taxes.
After all the government made marriage a state issue and last time I check there was a separation of church and state, there fore Religion should have NO say in the matter.
