I'm kind of in the middle ground on the subject. I would prefer not to have it be referred to as marriage, but I also think that with church and state being separate, my beliefs don't necessarily have the right to be legislated. As such, I didn't cast a vote.

The main reason I kind of take issue with the semantics is that LONG, LONG before marriage was a legal union, it was a religious institution. It's something of the church's that the government has stuck it's nose in on, and now is regulating.
