One of the questions I heard at the NOM rallies this week in St. Paul, St. Cloud and Rochester was, “Why can't two people who love each other, and are in a long term committed relationship be able to get married?"
Good question, but first let’s define what advocates for same-sex marriage mean by long-term, committed and marriage.
According to a brand new study of 566 gay couples by the Center for Research on Gender & Sexuality at San Francisco State University the majority defined committed long term relationships as allowing for sex with outsiders.
Is sex on the side how Americans define marriage? Is that how you define your own marriage? I think not.
And, how do children fair when the parents have sex outside of marriage?
Don’t be fooled by this dubious trap. (However, I don't believe that most of the people who ask this question realize they are advocating for marriage with sex on the side.) Never-the-less, the next time you are asked this rhetorical question, make sure to ask how they define the terms and then quote the study.
