If I marry the same sex person I married last time would that be same sex marriage?

Asked by majorrich (12898 points ) May 11th, 2014

Wife unit and I were debating. Suppose something happened and she died or something awful like that. I marry another female, which is the same sex I married the first time. Is that not same sex marriage? I believe so, but maybe a different way of looking at the same phrase. She’s mad at me now and won’t discuss it any further.

Only if you marry some one who is the same sex as you is it “same sex marriage.”

Yes, in the same way that someone born in Milwaukee of German parents is Native American or Charlize Theron is African-American.

It’s technically true as a word game. I have no problem with that.

But if it’s done to belittle other peoples’ rightful claims of unfair and unlawful discrimination it’s hateful.

Sure it is.

If a man and wife reside in one of them red states, and let’s say the woman dies, then Bubba has to marry a man the next time. If only Irony was the bogus being that they feared. ;-)

Hahahaha…I like this twist. Yes, it would be, from an out of the box perspective but, true “same sex”, means the same sex as you are.

I would be mad at you and refuse to entertain you any further as well.

Ugh. Man, your wife must be a saint!

I don’t think your wife is mad because you don’t understand what same sex marriage is. I think she’s mad at you because you’re imagining what you might get up to after she dies.

I have to admit my wife is indeed a Saint. It would be nearly impossible to replace her with a newer model. Besides at my age, too old to train another one. She says about the same thing about me being housebroken.
