Attis (above) writes, "A society that abandons the essential family (father, mother, children) has essentially just abandoned its foundation and children."
What makes you think that allowing Gay couples to marry means that we are "abandoning" the family? Were you under the impression that the marriage equality movement was a sinister effort to make homosexuality compulsory for everyone? Did you think that if Gay people were denied the right to marry, we would simply stop being Gay? If so, you really ought to get to know some Gay people.
Let me reassure you: For people who are Straight (i.e. heterosexual), absolutely nothing is happening to the institution of marriage. Nothing is being "redefined." The human population will always be predominantly Straight, and they will continue to date, get engaged, marry, and build lives and families together as they always have. None of that is going to change when Gay couples decide to tie the knot also.
