Kagan tells Scalia to just STFU:
JUSTICE KAGAN: No, really, because if the

the man are over the age of 55, there are not a lot of
children coming out of that marriage.
MR. COOPER: Your Honor, society's -
society's interest in responsible procreation isn't just
with respect to the procreative capacities of the couple
itself. The marital norm, which imposes the obligations
of fidelity and monogamy, Your Honor, advances the
interests in responsible procreation by making it more
likely that neither party, including the fertile party

JUSTICE KAGAN: Actually, I'm not even -
JUSTICE SCALIA: I suppose we could have a
questionnaire at the marriage desk when people come in
to get the marriage -- you know, Are you fertile or are
you not fertile?
JUSTICE SCALIA: I suspect this Court would
hold that to be an unconstitutional invasion of privacy,
don't you think?
JUSTICE KAGAN: Well, I just asked about
age. I didn't ask about anything else. That's not -
we ask about people's age all the time.
