I agree with AverySmallFox; it's pretty much what I've said but it's probably said
Leave religion to the religious. Anyone can have a marriage ceremony if they find a clergy-person or other meaningful individual to administer it, and anyone can use the term "married" to apply to their union. For both hetero and gay couples, the legal term for their union would be "domestic partnership" or some such other civil term, and it would apply to both equally.
I understand Annee's position and the one taken above, though. There should be no distinction at all between those of different sexual orientation. However, I believe the proposal in the OP would satisfy that requirement.

You have yet to present to me any legal argument for denying gay marriage and now you want me to present one for allowing it? You really have nerve don’t you. I’ve already expressed that I am not going to read through this thread,You have yet to present to me any legal argument for denying gay marriage and now you want me to present one for allowing it? You really have nerve don’t you. I’ve already expressed that I am not going to read through this thread, I’ve made several legal arguments for gay marriage; all you need to do is look at my post history or search my username and “gay marriage”. I haven’t answered your questions? Oh, please. Most of my post you just reply to with “read the thread”. Now I’m putting you on ignore, but I’ll enjoy discussing this with anyone who has a level head and wishes to reply to me. Hopefully they’ll have the smarts to not start a conversation with me unless they actually intend on presenting the argument they claim to have.

Yeah yeah, like we're supposed to listen to someone who advocates raping bats
I think society needs to take a stronger stand against bat rape, as well as monkey molesting, ferret fondling, and gopher groping
(I kid, I kid )
Soon the beastiality group will want to be recognized and accepted.
