Given the case the authors make for marriage in the first 199 pages, their statements on same-sex marriage are weak at best. If marriage is better for individuals, then surely it is better for individuals in same-sex relationships. If it is better for society to have more people in the married state, surely it is better for society to increase the number of married people by allowing gays and lesbians to marry. If it is better for children to live with married parents, surely it would be better for the children of gays and lesbians to have married parents. Maggie Gallagher's objections to same-sex marriage make no sense to me, now that I've read this book.
