Try the following thought experiment. Assume that suddenly everyone that was straight turned homosexual and vice versa. Suppose those who were previously married were now in same-sex marriages, and vice versa. In other words, assume for the sake of argument, that there really is no difference between the two types of unions.

Would this have no impact on society? Would these new couples be contributing to society is exactly the same way they were before?
In both cases I'd go to city hall for my wedding license. I do not want a religious ceremony. My goals and actions would remain the same. If I was in a relationship that couldn't have children and I desired otherwise, I would seek adoption. Again my actions would remain the same.
