Nothing to explain. They simple adopted each other which anyone can do. I haven't talked to them personally but their aopted daughter said it was a pretty simple process since both were adults.

Oh right. All heterosexuals are holy and noble, and all homosexuals are hedonistic partiers.

Nearly the same percentage of same-sex couples are raising children as are opposite-sex couples. A lot of people don't realize that, but it's true.

I meant explain because I honestly have never heard of two adults who adopted each other.

It kind of sounds wrong. When you think about adopt, you think about bringing home a pet from the humane society or a child.

Not your lover.

Am I missing something?

So, you do not care for equality? You would rather see people discriminated against and oppressed rather than actually caring that their lives as citizens are not equal to yours?

It is not that unusual for an adult to adopt an adult. Some people that have no family but have grown very fond of someone (romantic or not) find adoption the path to making sure their estate is left to them or some other reason. Call an adopton agency and see what they say out of curiosity. There is nothing wrong about adults adopting an adult unless there is something underhanded going on.

EVERYONE has the SAME right to marry the opposit sex. We ALL have the same rights. There is NO discrimination. Not all people marry for love.

You are so full of $hit......where do you get your information from? Jerry Falwell? Gays do not live just for today. We are also concerned about future generations. Whether you like it or not MANY gays and lesbians procreate to produce children.

If the mating of heterosexuals is so normal, then why do homosexuals and lesbians have the SAME sex organs that are capable of reproducing? I guess with that line of thinking, homosexuals are normal.

I guess you are missing that fact that the same sex together produces NOTHING.
