    Man and Wife could mean: I'm a self-made man and I have a cooperative woman by my side who is the baby-maker and homemaker.

    Man and Husband could mean: I'm a self-sufficient man and I have a cooperative man by my side who is my cave-maker.

    So, the answer seems to be Batman and his butler, Alfred.

    Since there are many solo batmen in the gay community, would you really want to be a butler husband?

    Not in every state in the U.S., at this time.

    Double standard?

    Hm.

    When a self-made man loves a woman and makes her his wife...
    When a self-made man loves a man and makes him his husband...

    That's the setup.

    Mypyear2010, the double standard comes up demographically, hence the question, would you want to be in a Batman-Butler type of gay marriage.

    The double standard also come up in the baby-making capability. The wife in "man and wife" can have a man's child. What? The butler will carry Batman's sperm to surrogate mom and 9 months later bring Batman a baby?

    Let's think of two other movies, just to get an idea of how men have been dedicated to other men in subservient roles:

    In addition to Batman, there is The Remains of the Day (1993) [Anthony Hopkins plays the butler] or Maurice (1987) a financially lower class homosexual gives himself to an Edwardian society financially upper class homosexual.

    Then, there is The Dresser (1983), one of my favorite movies--I saw it with friends from the Academy of Dramatic Arts. In this movie the dresser serves a great actor played by Albert Finney.

    In the Eagle, Channing Tatum's character loves his slave, played by Jamie Bell (former Billy Elliot actor). Now, with this example, one might wonder if the gay sex slave role can turn into a spouse.

    Noren,

    What, then, is the category mistake? You really think, flaccidly, that men do not like serving other men?

    "Equivalant" is ambiguous.
    Equivalent in what way? Love and devotion? Great sex? Reproducing your genes?

    No two *straight* marriages are equivalent.

    You misremember Maurice. Alec was definitely the pants-wearer in that relationship icon_wink.gif
