Marriage Laws between Man and Woman

Laws that define marriage as only between those couples who are ostensibly capable of procreation help support a culture where couples who procreate are encouraged to marry and/or stay married. Legalized same-sex marriage would gradually remove this cultural connection between procreation and marriage and further, would "institutionalize the idea that children do not need both their mother and their father" (Family Research Council). As I wrote about previously, this will almost certainly result in even more children being raised by single parents.
