Taking It to Its Natural Conclusion

So many defenders of "traditional family values" say that the purpose of marriage is to have kids, to uphold the structure of civilization by upholding the traditional kernel of society the family, yadda yadda yadda. I wonder how they'll feel about this proposed law in Washington state.

The heart of the Washington Defense of Marriage Alliance's proposal is this:

The measure would require couples to prove they can have children to get a marriage license. Couples who do not have children within three years could have their marriages annulled.

All other marriages would be defined as "unrecognized," making those couples ineligible for marriage benefits.

After, all, why would anyone doubt the stability of a heterosexual family unit?
