    should society prohibit marriage for those unable to procreate? Should those who've lost their ability due to disability or illness, or women past menopause, be told "No marriage for you"?Should we annul marriages that don't produce offspring within, say, 5 years?

      So true, all of it.  That was what I found so offensive in his remarks.  No one else's opinion or relationship mattered other than that which he thought mattered.  How Republican of him.  It's offensive.  His attitude, and the GOP's in general, is offensive.  I asked him about civil rights and his answer went back to marriage should only be between a man and a woman and the reason is procreation.  You can't get past the self-assured, self-absorbing ignorance to a place of reason, ever.  It's their way or the highway.   I read about people from certain states wanting to secede, and I think to myself "go, and take this incredible unreasonable ignorance with you - please."
