Those were adopted by a legal process, of elected or appointed officials, people given that authority under our system of laws. One set of circumstances for marriage may consider, or not consider, the set of circumstances of another. That is why you have marriage, and why you have civil unions. The basic guidelines were adopted to fit the different circumstances. In this case, the requirements for marriage and civil unions differs, but both are afforded the same end results. You have yet to answer my question concerning the exact opposite senerio exists in civil unions, where age limitations are set on heterosexuals. I contend their are sound reasons why each has its own set of circumstances.
You can not have several spouses, isn't that discrimination? Should consenting adults be permitted to marry siblings or first cousins? Is every law about morality unconstitutional?
