Con

I do not accept the idea of same sex marriage. Marriage is for a man and a woman who love each other. The purpose of marriage is to procreate. How can two women or two men procreate?
9spaceking

Pro

Accepted. Opponent has to prove why the purpose of marriage is to procreate.

The idea that marriage is just for a man & a woman
who love each other doesn't make sense.
The idea that marriage is just for procreation
also obviously doesn't make sense.
Same-sex marriage also doesn't make sense.
2 members of the same sex obviously can't get married.
It doesn't matter whether they want to, whether it's legal or not, etc.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Pro. Con forfeited multiple rounds which is rarely acceptable conduct in any debate setting. S&G - Tie. Both had adequate spelling and grammar. Arguments - Pro. Con failed to provide any rebuttals to the argument presented by Pro, thus Pro wins these points. Sources - Tie. Neither utilized sources in this debate. This is a clear win for Pro.
