I’ve long wondered by constitutional amendments to protect marriage haven’t also outlawed divorce and denied the institution to couples who don’t plan to have children. Now, the AP reports that in Washington

Proponents of same-sex marriage have introduced a ballot measure that would require heterosexual couples to have a child within three years or have their marriages annulled….

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.

At long last! A full-throated defense of real marriage!

After this passes, we can get to work on tightening up dress codes.
