Family First Supports Marriage Equality

Another controversy put to rest, thanks to my diligent efforts.

Family First has issued a snapshot listing 21 reasons why marriage matters.

For example:

  • Married men earn more money than do single men with similar education and job histories.
  • Married people, especially married men, have longer life expectancies than do otherwise similar singles.
  • Marriage is associated with better health and lower rates of injury, illness, and disability for both men and women.
So the more people that marry the better!

Even if we put aside those of the 21 reasons that apply only to children (and if we let gay couples adopt, many of those reasons would be valid), Family First’s own arguments show that any marriage is better than no marriage.

  2. #McCoskrieSlope – gay marriage will slip to “polygamous, polyamorous and incestuous adult unions”.
