Those are for being a married couple.

Do you know why married couples get those tax benefits?

That is not law, it just happens often.  What I think it actually is(if its not it should be) is whoever has custody of the kids gets paid by the other.

Maybe in you're state it isn't a law, it is in many places in the world.

It can be argued the it's the government promoting marriage.
It's supposed to help with family life.

Its exactly that but why does the government promote marriage? To spare more apartments or is it something else?

I agree with jefferysinspiration. It's supposed to help with family life, and it does. So when gay couples marry they should have the same rights in case they want to start a family.

Well, since the 30's, the government's promoted homeownership like crazy, as well. And most homes happen to contain families in them with a couple usually. So that's my guess as to why they promote it.

People still need a place to live in. Most families buy their home and most lone people also do that eventually.

I gave two examples for how the corrent marriage system isn't fit for gay couples and it should be enough.

Not really, I can't think of more than one, and even then it's not a good example or supporting point, it was barely touched, and boils down to "gay people shouldn't get tax breaks"

For darvinistic, its a scientific term for how nature explains things. Like Darvin explained things, that im not going to get into if they are right or no, I was using the term

DarWinistic. I had thought you might mean that, there was no guy named "Darvin" it's "Darwin"

For the 6% tons of sources but it really doesn't matter if its 2%, 10% or whatever so I'm not going to wast time finding a source, hell maybe I was even a few percent off.

If you're going to make a specific claim, back it up, don't just say, "You should know"

devorse were the husbant keeps paying the wife.

Oh here's reason that's not quite a reason #2! So, you have it stuck in your head that the mother has to be the one to take care of the kids?

Goblin, there's more to it than tax breaks. There are things that marriage also entitles, like if your spouse is in a coma, you speak for them, or just being recognized as a couple, things like that. You do realize that all of your arguments are based on human nature, not gay people in particular? It's far from out of the question that a heterosexual couple married to get a tax break.

For duel-sexuality- yes its bisexuality in English. Here's my poor and way below average English skills in this forum.

Yeah that's not a requirement for a child to turn out gay.

tax benefits, devorse were the husbant keeps paying the wife.

Gay couples should be allowed to raise a family if they so desire so they should get the tax breaks so there go your for point of pigheadedness. As I had already pointed out your views on marriage are archaic, you make it sound as if other arrangements couldn't be worked out. Such arrangements could actually end up benefiting the system to break away from dogmatic views that should be broken away from anyway. So giving this could actually have unforeseen positive effects on the law in cases of divorce.

I didnt liked Darwins father too. Be my guest.

That made absolutely no sense what so ever. But since you asked here are my links, feel free to read them at your leisure but likely ignore them and remain in your ignorant state where I and others will have to beat you with facts at a later date when the topic more specific to evolution crops up.

Alright mage.

Is that an OK, you'll read it, or you agree, or your dismissing it? Be more specific considering the vast quantities of evidence he just presented to you
