If, as you say, the purpose of marriage is to stabilize the relationships that produce children, then by your logic, heterosexuals who can’t (or don’t want to) have children should be prevented from marrying.
Does this objection prove that marriage isn’t really connected to children, or is there an answer to it? How do you respond? We’ll hear from Alan with his answer on Thursday.

As promised, for this week’s challenge, here’s the second part of the Debate.org argument:
Second, medical death occurs when electrical activity in the brain ceases. A corollary of this would indicate that medical life occurs when electrical activity in the brain STARTS. Thus, an entity without electrical activity in the brain is not alive.
I have heard this argument made several times. What do you think? Let’s hear from you, and then Alan will be here to finish this up on Thursday.
