Please consider reading: Gay Marriage and the Word “Matrimony” over at Culture 11.

Excerpt:

As we discuss “gay marriage” we must constantly refer to “Holy Matrimony”. “Matrimony” is a loaded term and it excludes “gay marriage”. The term “matrimony” derives from the Latin word matrimonium.

Matrimonium comes from two words: mater (”mother”) and monium (a suffix signifying “action, state, condition”).

In other words, “matrimony” infers procreation! The term infers that someone is going to become a “mother”. The term naturally denotes a heterosexual relationship. Consequently, we should learn to lean on this word as we debate “gay marriage”, because “gay matrimony” is an impossibility.
