It would make it easier if they wear wedding bands.

Constitution doesn't mention it - therefore it's not an enumerated power of the federal government. Back to the states where it belongs.

THIS is the difference between a conservative (who doesn't care) and a Republican (who care).

They were not laws that tried to alter the fundamental basis of marriage as between man and woman - they recognized it and tried to keep races apart to avoid mixed race children. That is not a valid comparison at all with laws that limit marriage to man and woman.

"Legalizing gay marriage will lead to legalizing the marriage of any number of people and any thing animal vegetable or mineral getting married."

You can ridicule my statement, but it's just a fact that places that have legalized same-sex "marriage" are moving toward recognizing, for example, "group marriage."

Link: "Just one week after the passage of gay ‘marriage’ legislation in New Zealand, it has been revealed that a group has been formed whose goal is to have group marriages recognized in law." http://www.lifesitenews.com/news/gro...rriage-in-new/
What if a woman no longer has a uterus due to a disease? Or what if a man is infertile? Should he or she not be allowed to marry because they can't produce children?

That was the best oral argument stammer I've ever heard. When one of the female justices said "Are you going to stop me from getting married because I can't have children?"

This is a common argument, but I don’t think it holds water. Sure, society’s interest in marriages that don’t produce children is less than its interest in marriages that do. However, we still recognize childless marriages because it would be an invasion of a heterosexual couple’s privacy to require that they prove their intent or ability to bear children. There’s no reason, though, to extend “marriage” to same-sex couples, which are physically incapable--ever, under any circumstances, regardless of age, health, or intent--of producing kids naturally. In fact, they are incapable of even engaging in the type of sexual act that results in natural reproduction. And it doesn't take any invasion of privacy or drawing of arbitrary upper age boundaries to determine that.

Another way to look at the relationship of marriage to reproduction is to turn the question around. Instead of asking whether actual reproduction is essential to marriage, ask this: If marriage never had anything to do with reproduction, would there be any reason for the government to be involved in regulating or rewarding it? Would we even tolerate the government intervening in such a relationship, any more than if government defined the terms of who may be your “best friend”?
