When I was a young man the actually word gay meant happy but because times change so did the connotation of this word. Now the word marriage is changing and we who feel strongly about the traditional meaning of this word must accept what is occurring and find a solution that works. We also must understand that the commitment that this word has stood for has declined as the traditional values based on this word have disintegrated faster then ever (ex Brittany Spears, President Clinton etc)
I believe this can only occur if we adopt an old word as our new word for a committed lovingly union between a man and a woman. This word is “Na’sui” it is a Hebrew word for this union so it’s history goes back hundreds if not thousands of years. This word will be protected not only because of it’s historic value but because it will be a legal protected term, as well as a term that requires certain parameters to be accepted (see below)
(1) The man and woman must make a commitment by clergy or those trained in performing this function.
(2) The man and woman must be educated about the commitment this relationship entails.
Society should give special benefits to these relationship because they are the building blocks of society. Most individuals in society are heterosexual and therefore are most likely the ones that will produce children. A committed relationship between these individuals from different sexes has been demonstrated throughout history to be the most successful way to raise children, lesson poverty and misery.
