I have two aunts who raised my cousin together. They deserved the same rights but without the term marriage (they certainly do not want people think they are in love)
The bible talks about marriage all the time. So marriage between a man and a woman is very important to me. I can not acknowledge marriage between same sex. Nor I like the gov't forcing me to knowledge it.
I'm ok with the term "civil union" in a gov't setting for everyone. But I just can not tell my kids they are married when I don't knowledge it.
Good thing about standards is that there are so many of them to choose from.
