Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, said the ‚Äúruling will have immediate consequences in America‚Äôs armed forces, which employ personnel from all states and grant extensive marriage benefits under federal law.‚ÄĚ
Donnelly said the U.S. military budget will be under pressure because of the Supreme Court‚Äôs actions, but it is hard to calculate how much.
‚ÄúNo one has estimated what the impact will be,‚ÄĚ said Donnelly, ‚Äúespecially during a time when sequestration cuts, large and small, are affecting military families worldwide.‚ÄĚ...
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.
