I'll ask you not to shout, Violette. Chill.
If a couple enters into marriage and finds it is infertile, it will not produce offspring. I'm not saying the marriage should be dissolved.
More to point: if enough infertile couples marry, what is the longterm result?
Again, it's simple science.

Chummy, this is why the courts are reviewing this. You hit the nail on the head.
Marriage is NOT about sex and reproduction. Marriage is about commiting the rest of your life to someone you love. Through sickness and in health. With or without children. Have you noticed that marriage vows have absolutely no mention of children? That is because marriage is a life adventure.
If reproduction were the only basis of marriage, then the courts would not be able to recognize the marriage of a man with a vasectomy to a woman in menopause. They wouldn't be able to recognize or accept a marriage between an infertal couple. Marriage is deeper than sexual reproduction.
