I could include a list of existing and historical definitions of marriage by different tribes and cultures, but it would likely be pointless. Obviously no consensus or detente can be reached if we do not even speak the same language. Plus, this might be misconstrued as an "appeal to authority" argument rather than the appeal to historical precedence I am trying to get across.
How does the institution of marriage predate the civilization that would be needed to recognize and affirm such an institution?
Pair-bonding has deep evolutionary roots. Marriage is a formal recognition of a pair-bond by the tribe, not by a state. Tribal life and tribal behaviors predate civilization by a wide margin.
SpaceX closed 9 deals, w/possible 2-3 heavies. Four more in the next few weeks, incl one non-GEO, then maybe 4 more before end of the year.
