If by "marriage" we mean just a legal contract between consenting adults
who (love and) care for each other and share mutual responsibility for each other then it's clear and obvious that all and any adults complying with these criteria are included.
Including obviously homosexual individuals. It really shouldn't be that complicated with countless smoke and mirrors created by special interests.

One thing to note - if we are following this philosophy then why on this planet earth
such legal mutual care/responsibility should be limited to 2 people?
How about 3 or 5 for that matter? Limitation to 2 doesn't make any sense whatsoever.
Then following this logic and being for equity and absence of discrimination why should
we discriminate based on family relations? Doesn't make any sense whatsoever.
We Must allow marriage between relatives based on such a logic. Am I missing something here?

Well Angel, I'm not Kathlyn Wynn, I'm not a God also to say what people can and can not do as far as sex is concerned. I'm just trying to explain to thinking people what logic supporting homosexual marriage actually means.
If we follow this logic then we must allow marriage between more than 2 people, marriage between relatives and so on and on and on.... and way she goes.........There is no end to it.
To any obstacle exactly the same argument on discrimination and unequity will be applied.
