YES!!! GamerGal, you've hit the nail on the proverbial head!
Let's expand on this notion...everyone, I assume, has heard about the 'sacred' vows as exchanged in the wedding ceremony...."...until death do us
part..." and other such, as it turns out, in over 50% of the time....nonsense!!!!
Shouts out to the few, the wonderful, who have had long-lasting relationships...sometimes they've even married!!
In the throes of early love, many a couple have been 'married'....only to see that 'love' falter and, despite the 'marriage vows'....the ones
that were stated before the Church and before 'God'....well....seems, DIVORCE is the only answer, after all. "Irreconciliable Differences" is the
SO MUCH for the 'Sanctity of Marriage', eh???

WHO CARES if the Groom and the Bride are ugly, and unlikely to spend more than a year together? The 'wedding' still goes on, since everyone
really wants to go to the 'reception' for the free food and booze...
So, WHY refuse the same concept to a Gay couple??? Sure, they might only last a year, just like lots of straights....but who cares??? It's free
food and booze!!!!!
See??? No real difference....the party is the same, the Industry (the 'wedding industry') benefits, and the results are likely just the same
