1. "Those who say marriage is no different to cohabitation are perhaps less sensitive to issues of continuity. Legally and socially, marriage provided us with an framework, struts: as a tradition, it predates history. And yet it is still trivialised as no more than "a piece of paper", or by the perception of it as a kind of country club from which those demarcated as undesirable are excluded. But marriage is not about religion or gender; it is an admission of vulnerability, a commitment to the perpetual evaluation of priorities and a social stabiliser."
Author: Antonella Gambotto Burke
2. "I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I am not in favor of gay marriage.

I could not have phrased it better myself."

Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf. Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone."
