“Life may be crowned with every satisfaction without being happy, or be perfectly calm and peaceful without being happy.” Benedict Bro, OP
Marriage also has a second end of the mutual benefit of the spouses but it's more complex to show why gay "marriage……
If you wonder about the stability & fidelity of same sex marriages, here's a piece from the @nytimes. (@KPHodgkiss)…
Opposition to gay marriage is not discrimination but realizing marriage is recognized for kids in a way that requires opposite sexes. /11end
Thus, the state should not recognize same-sex relationships as marriages because they lack the benefits it recognizes in marriage. /10
The state recognizes marriages primarily for the good of the children (& related issues like a man not abandoning a stay-at-home mom). /9
Thus, every child with a gay couple suffers issues of origin and likely suffers lack of stability. /8
Homosexual couples (even married ones) tend to be less stable & can only have adopted not procreated kids. /7
If a kid needs to be adopted, he lacks a certain degree of certainty about his origin which can have long lasting negative consequences. /6
Studies show that (1) stability is beneficial for children & (2) kids with their own parents is best (save neglect or abuse). /5
People can have many loving relationships that are not recognized as marriage: friendships, my religious community, adultery, etc. /4
Civil marriage has nothing to do with love but to help them procreate & educate kids well (& other legal stuff like inheritance). / /3
Marriage is not just two people who love each other & want a long-term sexual relationship, or a random joining of 2 people. /2
If we want to talk about gay "marriage" we need to begin with marriage: a union of 1m1w for the procreation & education of children. /1

We need to know that we can't save ourselves if we want a vibrant & evangelizing Church: that attitude stifles the Christian spirit.
Imagine how much love God looks down on Mary with. He looks on us all with love like that. (From my house.)
