Marriage. It's a hard term to define. Especially for me--I've ducked it like root canal. Still there's no denying the fact that marriage ranks right up there with birth and death as one of the three biggies in the human safari. It's the only one though that we'll celebrate with a conscious awareness. Very few of you remember your arrival and even fewer of you will attend your own funeral.
When you say 'the wrong side of history,' let's just be reminded that there's been a relatively, and I mean a very relative brief history of same-sex marriage. The overwhelming history is the natural law of marriage, biblical marriage, so I don't think there's a side of history that's overwhelming at this point. People have their opinions.
Should the marriage be legitimate, then there's nothing wrong with brokering a marriage, if in fact the marriage is fraudulent, then it should be a crime for everybody, not just the people who would be the alleged arrangers of the marriage.
Where there's marriage without love, there will be love without marriage.
Friendship is the marriage of the soul, and this marriage is liable to divorce.
