  Marriage has a special meaning. People may try to make it work between two men, two women, two women and a man or two men and a woman or two men who became two women or two women who became two men but it really isn't the same and it will never be the same regardless of all of the efforts in the world to make it so. If two men can be said to be 'married' then someone is going to have to come up with another word to describe the very special relationship that exists between a man and a woman who would otherwise be 'married.'

I've been saying that for years, humans will still need a word to describe the real marriage of the 99.9% of humans, so if "marriage" no longer serves a purpose in conversation, then we will have to come up with a new one for everyday conversation.
