What is "traditional marriage", who has the right to define it and what's wrong with changing it?
You know...I've seen this in several discussions about same-gender marriage. The argument that those against it always seems to fall back on is that the definition of "traditional marriage". But here's the thing that bugs me...the traditional definition of marriage has changed many times in the past and has varied from culture to culture. In the old days there were cultures that allowed men to marry multiple women, or in rare cases, women to marry multiple men, or in one single case, both. There have been restrictions on marrying foreigners, or in the US there were laws preventing whites from marrying blacks, and in most cultures divorce was forbidden for centuries.
So If "traditional marriage" has changed before, what's wrong with changing it again? It's not as if those who still have male-female traditional marriages would lose anything, right? Unless...do they lose something? I mean, did I miss something?
