Perhaps I misunderstood and something got lost in my translation, but doesn't bold text and CAPS indicate an intensity beyond a normal tone?
I was just trying to get you to focus on that question rather than talk about the rest of what I said, which funny enough you didn't touch. So it was to "focus" or highlight rather than add "emotion" as such.

Disagree. It's a personal choice. It is very personal. It's up to each and every couple. What couples do with each other has nothing to do with anyone and there's no reason to comment on what other couples do.

When did I say anything about personal choice? I was just referring to how society views marriage and how that view has changed. Of course it's a personal choice. What exactly are you disagreeing with?
Well you said:
Marriage is a concept that is becoming less of a necessity in our society. No, it's not dead, but relationships outside of marriage are perfectly acceptible in our society. That's why I want to know more about what people see as a benefit to same sex marriage.
Which on first read sounds like you meant it's not important which I disagree with. The majority still get married, probably for vastly different reasons than say 30-40 years ago but they still get married. Although I think that may dramatically change with the next generation.

The personal choice stuff, I was just talking about marriage being a very personal thing and people do it for all kinds of reasons. Some do it for status, some do it for benefits and some do it for what seems as the ultimate statement of love, "the commitment". Why deny at least 10% of the population the opportunity to be able to?
