Consummation or consummation of a marriage, in many traditions and statutes of civil or religious law, is the first (or first officially credited) act of sexual intercourse between two people, either following their marriage to each other or after a prolonged sexual attraction. Its legal significance arises from theories of marriage as having the purpose of producing legally recognized descendants of the partners, or of providing sanction to their sexual acts together, or both, and amounts to treating a marriage ceremony as falling short of completing the creation of the state of being married. Thus in some Western traditions, a marriage is not considered a binding contract until and unless it has been consummated.
"Barack Obama supports same sex marriage."
That's right too bad you didn't isten to him on why, as he himself evolved important principles on the subject. Why don't you open the mind and do the same. Other's religion, or lack of, is not your business, mind your own business. Try to talk them into your views if you like but you are no better than anyone to impose your views.
Oddly you probably are outraged by the NY large drink ban attempt, don't like others telling you what to do.

Same-sex "marriage" is an oxymoron being pumped by homosexuals and godless liberals who also think they have a "right" to murder their unborn babies. There seems to be no level of immorality to which these people will not stoop and they work to gain political power to advance their evil agenda. So good people had better wake up while there is still time.
I agree, though God/religion is irrelevant. "Marriage" is the merging of DNA that leads to offspring. Obviously that doesn't happen with gays. No reason they shouldn't be able to form legally binding partnerships, but the law doesn't change biology.
Marriage is the merging of DNA? That's a new one. The DNA is never merged unless there are children, which many times doesn't happen. Children are legal for 18 years then become legal entities. Marriage is a personal decision any two idiots crazy enough to sign away half their estate to a unrelated person, can enter into. You don't have to be in "love", you don't have to be anything, except alive enough to say I do, and sign your name on the license.
If you are sterile and so is your partner you can't procreate, but you can marry. Marriage is defined legally by whoever is allowed to get a license. Religion is a personal issue. Imposing your religion on others is not allowed, last I checked.
You don't need to be religious to get married with a marriage license. After getting that, you are married, and can be "gay" or "not gay." Otherwise, prohibiting "gays" to marry, the lawyers will lose business later, and you know you want more business, for the "producers." Look at it that way , it's good for business.
Now go back in time and explain how ronmey's mormon ancestors could marry one man, and a bunch of women. Or is that why they fled America? ho ho ho
