Plus, the world was suddenly missing it’s prime age breeding stock, WW1 and WW2 took such horrific daily running totals of POW, MIA, wounded/dying, and Dead, that today’s wars are running longer over time with far more death of suicide than combat.

The mere fighting over the word or phrase “marriage” vs “civil union” demonstrates the the difference in emotional loading of the words; but they also convey a different meaning.
Marriage creates a legal kinship, whereas “civil union” does not it creates the bridge and legal slippery slope into people as incorporated entities (wills and estate, property and chattel, of which, humans used to be deemed, from female spouse to offspring and slaves.)
