Nuzum, please get some Charmin and wipe your mouth, you have been talking shit again.

1) Webster's dictionary doesn't define the law.
2) Unless a state specifically prohibits same sex marriages, then it is implicitly allowed. Here in Washington State, marriage is legally defined as "A civil contract between a man and a woman." Hence same sex marriages are illegal, but that does not mean that the law is not subject to challenge on constitutional grounds.

Nice try however.
