The Heritage Foundation has written an excellent post outlining why marriage matters. Here are the main points of the piece, written by Ryan T. Anderson, along with a few of my own thoughts:
- “[M]arriage exists to bring a man and a woman together as husband and wife to be father and mother to any children their union produces. It is based on the anthropological truth that men and women are different and complementary, on the biological fact that reproduction depends on a man and a woman, and on the social reality that children need a mother and a father. Marriage has public purposes that transcend its private purposes.”
If you want to have a relationship with someone, fine.
