The guide was an educated young man btw... sad
So it's safe to say that the majority of the world doesn't allow same sex marriage. Now that's not to say anything good or bad. Remember, we are only talking about numbers here.
So in order for same sex marriage to be even close to the norm, 77 more countries need to recognize this. (That means the majority 99 countries yes and 97 countries no).
The list I would like to see.......Of the 173 current countries that don't allow same sex marriage, which one's are more likely to change their position on the issue? That would be jetpunk GOLD.
I don't think a majority will happen anytime soon, but, as a Gen Z, I could forsee it happening within my lifetime.
I do agree that men with power will always monopolise most things, including sex, if they want it.
You could certainly make an argument that it has changed enough over time that the statements no longer hold, but "I'm married and" is not that argument.
It's hard for me personally to figure out in what respects marriage protects the individual except for giving access to various things which should clearly not be hidden behind marriage in the first place.
If you want to delve further into this topic, I suggest reading Aldous Huxley’s book, Brave New World, which provides a fascinating perspective on why marriage or at the very least monogamy is important. While the book is definitely not PC as it was written in the 1931, the underlying message still rings true and I would definitely suggest reading it.
Time for an update!

The new law goes into effect July 1, 2022.
Or do you just think same-sex couples, whilst you love them, shouldn’t be able to have next of kin or inheritance or a legal say over their partners medical decisions if they’re incapacitated, or the ability to adopt or pay taxes together etc? Y’know, the legal things obtained by a civil marriage.
And if you say ‘well a civil partnership offers that’ then it’s literally just the use of the name ‘marriage’ that’s bothering you. At which point surely you’d not care if it was renamed ‘garriage’.
And if that’s the case it’s kinda just being a pedant really isn’t it? That a word is bothering you.
Marriage is a right for everyone, so excluding some people just because they love a certain group is wrong.
Another word: cope.
What is so wrong with two people in love getting married?
Also, imagine thinking that it's a good thing to prevent same-sex couples from getting married. Like previous comments have said, marriage is a right. I ask that you open your mind and become a more tolerant and kinder person if you don't want to get replies like this for your bigotry.
Also add Slovenia, Cuba, and Andorra.
