Example: I am a straight man, I cannot marry another man. There are plenty of reasons other than love to enter into a civil union, the rules are the same for everyone.
1) What's the compelling reason to outlaw brother-sister marriages ?
2) Assuming that same sex marriage were legal, does the state have a compelling case to outlaw two brothers marrying ?
You'll hear people say incestuous marriages should be illegal due to the risk of birth defects, and becaues it is "icky" but not all incestuous couples want or can even have kids.
And the kids rationale wouldn't apply with same sex incestuous couples.
Kudzu and beta--
If we take the sex distinctions out of marriage, then we wouldn't distinguish between same-sex and opposite-sex incestuous relationships.
Dieser Weg wird kein leichter sein; dieser Weg wird steinig und schwer.
Nicht mit vielen wirst du dir einig sein, doch dieses Leben bietet so viel mehr. --Xavier Naidoo
