and in the wedding day you even need some witnesses

is that correct?

I can't see that this is rational .. cause the outcome of this kind of unrational marrige will never be a child ... (adopting is something else)

so i don't consider this marrige.. it is just stupidity

Lesbian marriage may well, with artificial insemination, lead to a biological child for the couple....

If this is true

registering marrige in a special office ... having witnesses during the marrige day..

then..


why all this hassle ?

they don't believe in religions .. and marrige was always a spiritual religous thing.. regardless of how or where it is done ...regardless of the arrangments and details .. but marrige has always been a spiritual religous thing.


lets say it is not a spritual religous thing...

what is the meaning of marrige to an atheist?

I am saying

one important reason for getting married is to have kids in the future (up to them to decide when)


and this can only happen between a male and a female.


male to male marrige or female ot female marrige can never succeed to bring out a child.

marriage is a legal commitment. Nothing to do with religion.
In many European countries religious ceremonies also have to be backed up by civil services.
