This part of the decision bothered me as well. If a majority wants things to be a certain way, the judge seems to say the majority opinion is only valid if there is a good reason to want things that way.

And the branch of government who gets to decide if there was a "good reason" is the unelected Judidiary. As it is we only seem to win because this particular judge thinks desire for procreation is a good reason.

I find it surprising that, in this debate, the human and civil rights of children are never mentionned. Same-sex marriages deprive children of their human and civil rights. These "marriages" create a "second tier" class of citizens that, at the outset and by design is intentionally deprived of its full rights and privileges as a human. If divorce law tells us that, in redefining a family, the best interests of the child are paramount, with the needs of the adults subordinate to this fact, then how can the reverse argument be made in our courts when considering the codification of same-sex marriages?
