A pleasant perversity

Washington state legislators decided to define marriage as between one man and one woman, and the courts upheld their right to do so based on "state interest in protecting marriage for procreation." Well, ok then; gay rights activists have submitted legislation to require proof of procreative potential/activity from all license-seekers:
I-957 has five clauses that would have to be met for a legal marriage.

It would allow only couples capable of having kids to marry, and that they file "proof of procreation" within three years of the marriage. If not, the marriage would be annulled.
I have to agree with Markos, who says,
Damn right! If marriage is about procreation, then it should be about procreation.

Otherwise -- and I can't believe this is still controversial! - let marriage be between people who love each other.
Amen. Put up or shut up, Washington.
