This is where you're wrong, RM!
"Identical to ..." does not mean "the same as .." and there are several constructions that are 'identical' to marriage that aren't marriage itself! Especially when 'marriage' has its own specific definition.
I guess that I'm going to have to revise my logic class to reflect Texan use of the identity relation.
So Texans think that it is irreflexive, huh?
