AN ARGUMENT AGAINST CIVIL UNIONS
P1. The state promotes civil unions as a socially acceptable sexual relationship
P2. Any sexual relationship outside of marriage is fornication/adultery
C. Therefore the state promotes fornication/adultery as a socially acceptable sexual relationship
In states where civil unions are legal, they are usually promoted as an honorable alternative to marriage for those ineligible to marry. As civil unions are not available to close relations, civil unions are assumed to be sexual. This clearly promotes sex outside of marriage.
