Reader takes issue with Fowler

Sara Tarpley questions Family Action Council of Tennessee's David Fowler for predicating marriage rights on fertility.

David Fowler believes that the primary importance of marriage is "its natural procreative potential and the unique roles each sex adds to the nurturing of the children they may raise."

If that is the case, we should automatically deny a marriage license when either the bride or groom is known to be infertile. Perhaps we should go further and dissolve those marriages that have not produced children after a reasonable period.
