Marriage was originally a pagan title I believe, so I would like the christian/catholic/protestant/jewish churches to stop handing out pagan titles like 'marriage'.

Well many animals have monogamous relationships, it goes farther back than humanity.

Well that's hard to determine because it doesn't have the same connotation in every ancient language.

True, but the connotation today is basically the same as the pagan connotation.

Do you have a citation for that? Or did you just hear someone say it? Besides, just because a word includes certain concepts now doesn't mean it shouldn't be expanded or retracted to fit social growth and change. For example, think what would have fallen under the umbrella of "rape" 100 years ago, or even 50.

Correct. But emerging social conscience dictates that it be expanded out of respect for women. I think marriage could be thought of similarly.

Still, the point is that 'separate but equal' is crap, if we want a word thats purely religous, make a new one up, marriage is not men and women couples to own.
