If anyone wants to make a legal commitment, and are of legal age so be it!
When did parenting become criteria for marriage?
Have met many Great parents & some were never married.
Parenting, who decides which is the better way?
Peace to all who make their own choices.

I’m just very skeptical about gay parenting.. until that issue is cleared, I will approve of gay marriage.

What’s there to be skeptical about? If two people love each other and want to raise a child together, isn’t that better than two people who: a) had an accidental pregnancy and now the ‘baby daddy’ feels that he’d much rather be down on the corner than taking care of his kids b) don’t love each other and are having a kid together to ‘save the relationship’? I’d much rather have two gay parents who are committed to raising their kid right than two heterosexual people who could care less about junior. Are you worried that if a kid is raised in a gay household they won’t be exposed to a worldly view? That they won’t understand that there’s a diverse world outside their door and the more open their minds are, the farther they’ll probably go? Because there are plenty of hetero parents who limit what their kids are exposed to whether it’s art, lifestyle choices, food, or even essentials like reading, good behavior, etc. Are you worried the kid’s going to be abused? Plenty of abuse in hetero households. Psychological, physical, sexual, you name it – it’s there. Are you worried the kid’s going to be raised to not respect religion? Not true. In fact, plenty of gay parents take their kids to church. The Episcopal church is open to all and celebrates diversity as part of God’s will. So…what’s there to be skeptical about?

Maybe we can get past the sex part & remember it is a Legal commitment,
If two people can live up to their vows then I commend them.
Seems to me it’s a win win situation for attorney’s & courts either way.
Prefer sharing peace in lives, not ripping others apart for their preferences…
