"This is why it is inherently unfair, since gay couples can satisfy all but the last requirement, and it's the only one which serves absolutely no legitimate state interest."\

I totally disagree. The states interest in marriage is indeed to promote strong and stable families for the procreaation and nurturing of children. This is pecisely why gay marriage is not in the state's interest. Otherwise why have marriage at all? Why not a certificate for room mates, for couples living together? Its all about encouraging and protesting the family unit and procreation. While gay couples may be able to satisfy other requirements, they cannot satisfy the most important one, creating children.
