Libertarian case/No-fault divorce[edit]

I find the libertarian case misrepresented. Effectively it already makes no differences whether you are married or not since no-fault divorce was introduced and sex outside marriage legalised. Common law marriage assumes you are married when you are not. Child support does not depend on a kid being illegitimate or not. There is really no penalty for whoring around anymore, so I think the argument that the state should stay out of the business is legit.— Unsigned, by: / talk / contribs

Legal arguments section outdated[edit]

The legal arguments section somehow does not include the actual arguments in Obergefell v. Hodges, notably the "right to choice of intimate identity and beliefs". Any objections to adding them? Also the author of the text, Justice Anthony Kennedy, somehow does not have a page? Ramendik (talk) 23:34, 2 January 2018 (UTC)

Why not gold?[edit]

Why not making this article Gold? It seems to me that it meets all criteria. -Lankaster (talk) 12:54, 18 November 2018 (UTC)

Very poor research[edit]

You are wrong, you failed to cite counter sources, ad hominem, get over it and go away. ☭Comrade GC☭Ministry of Praise 12:14, 16 November 2019 (UTC)
There were indeed some broken links in that section, but I've fixed them all now, and added yours GC.--Yisfidri (talk) 00:24, 17 November 2019 (UTC)

What egdes where?[edit]

From the article: "According to the recent Gallup poll,the percentage of Americans favoring same sex marraige egdes high like never before!" I'd correct it if I could tell what it was supposed to mean. Vivisectionist (talk) 03:14, 28 August 2020 (UTC)

I think "edge" is misspelled. I think when they mean by "edge high" they mean there's a big margin. See edge out phrase. --It's-a me, Lgm sigpic.png LeftyGreenMario! 04:43, 28 August 2020 (UTC)
