What makes marriage, marriage?

Via the American Power blog, we found this excellent post from last August on the definition of marriage from Sense of Events:


All of which is to say that the accidental characteristics of marriage – love, affection, property and other rights – spring from what marriage is rather than define what marriage is. Therefore, whatever relationship homosexuals may have with one another, and whatever legal rights civil authority may confer upon them, marriage is inherently – indeed, metaphysically – the province only of men and women united in matrimony.

Well worth a read.
