Ok, lets break it down..
One of the prime reasons for government, is the continuation of the the state, and continuing prosperity...
A married couple (man and woman), tends to contribute to this, by producing offspring, thus ensuring the continuance of the state. (As stated above,
married people without offspring may be more penalized than rewarded for marriage, but can still file separate taxes if so...). (I would argue, that
a gay marriage that adopts, should be entitled to the same tax breaks....).
Family is the backbone of society. You must have a good solid family foundation to have a good society. I believe that this is the foundation for
why there are certain tax breaks for married couples.
