Thought Experiment On Marriage

I'd like to engage you in a thought experiment, dear reader. Suppose for a moment that two people care deeply about each other and want to spend their lives together. Set aside your assumptions about the nature of their sexual relationship just for a moment (we'll come back to it); Let's assume they're not having sex.

These two people share common interests and views on the important things in their lives. It just so happens that they're the same gender, but that's hardly relevant because this isn't about sex, remember? They care for eachother like brothers or sisters. Such love and commitment is something we should all encourage and celebrate, right?

Now, I promised we'd come back to sex and I know some of you may be harboring a significant doubt or concern about the physical nature of this same-sex relationship.  Let's address the part about sex. I'm happily married to my wife for 14 years.    We have three young children. You might reasonably assume we've had sex, but you wouldn't dare to ask us about our sex life, right?  Because you understand that what consenting adults do in private of our bedroom is none of your goddamn business.

Same goes for homosexual couples. Mind your own fucking business.
