how is gay marriage consummated?

Jonathan Rauch:

“Well, gay marriages are consummated by gay love, by gay relationships, by gay sex, by the fact that we will be there for each other when we’re sick, by the fact that in the days when we couldn’t get married, some of my friends held their shivering, dying, wasting partners, held them to their bodies as human blankets to keep them warm enough so they wouldn’t convulse and did that for weeks on end until the end came — when the families very often would shun these people because they were gay and because they had AIDS. This is how marriage is consummated.”
