Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, said the â€śruling will have immediate consequences in Americaâ€™s armed forces, which employ personnel from all states and grant extensive marriage benefits under federal law.â€ť
Donnelly said the U.S. military budget will be under pressure because of the Supreme Courtâ€™s actions, but it is hard to calculate how much.
â€śNo one has estimated what the impact will be,â€ť said Donnelly, â€śespecially during a time when sequestration cuts, large and small, are affecting military families worldwide.â€ť...
There is a financial cost, and it will be a huge one. Because not only the military but Social Security, etc. will be effected. Because queers will be demanding payments for being a spouse, when they fulfill none of the roles that jpw has pointed out. I would again note:
Matthew 19 3 And some Pharisees came to Him, testing Him, and saying, "Is it lawful for a man to divorce his wife for any cause at all?" 4 And He answered and said, "Have you not read, that He who created them from the beginning MADE THEM MALE AND FEMALE, 5 and said, 'FOR THIS CAUSE A MAN SHALL LEAVE HIS FATHER AND MOTHER, AND SHALL CLEAVE TO HIS WIFE; AND THE TWO SHALL BECOME ONE FLESH'? 6 "Consequently they are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate."---NASB
the cost will be great because unstable societies have increased social issues and increased dependence. children need a constant father and a loving mother. anyway, children don't exist without them either.
