Maggie keeps talking about the importance of marriage as it relates to having children. I'm heterosexual and have been married to my wife for over 6 years. We are not having children. Our marriage is not about having children. Does Maggie think my marriage is worth less or shouldn't be recognized because we don't plan to have children. Our marriage is about love and commitment to each other. The decision to have children is secondary to the initial felling of love for another and the decision to be committed to each other. I would say to Maggie that her fear of change is understandable but we have to change and adapt to the needs of our society. Her need to hold onto the past definitions of marriage will render her obsolete.
