Sex and procreation is a biological function that predates human culture. Historically, marriage is a institution that arose in many cultures to insure inheritance rights and to cement tribal bonds. A review of anthropology studies would indicate that marriage is cultural phenomenon that is overlayed on the biology of human reproduction.
Procreation outside the codified laws of society is normal and common. This leads me to conclude same sex marriage or opposite sex marriage is totally independent to property rights and tribal bonds.
I have yet to hear a single argument that would indicate that my relationship to my heterosexual partner (and spouse) is in any way diminished because somebody else chooses to pass on their property to a person of their choice.
