Same Sex Marriage

It turns out there is some hair splitting in the same-sex marriage issue. Gay marriage is non synonomous with same-sex marriage. That being the case, two middle aged straight guys are getting married to each other.
This makes sense. Married couples get benefits that singles do not enjoy. Friends look out for each other (for better or for worse). There are open marriages. Married people complain that sex fizzled after the marriage.
Why wouldn't two straight guys who wanted to save money, meet women and not have sex with one another get married? Besides all that, the concept of marriage in the name of love is uncommon. Royalty often forged political unions via marriage. Many cultures have arranged marriages to transfer assets to the next generation. This concept isn't so much a perversion of the concept of marriage as it is a carry-through to the nth degree.
