I am looking for someone to give me a reasonable explanation(s) why a same-sex couple should not be allowed to participate in the beauty, sacredness, and holiness that marriage is. For the 1st round I am asking for acceptance, 2nd-4th round going deeper into the argument, and the 5th round should be the final conclusion. This is my first debate so I'm not quite sure what to expect. Also, absolutely NO copying and pasting. If you are going to speak on your opinion, let it be YOUR own. I have a lo...

I believe that a marriage is formed by love and by two people thinking that they should be together for the rest of their lives. A Marriage is simply showing the world that they love one another and plan to be together for the rest of there lives....

Gay marriage should be legal in all 50 states

Gay marriage should definitely be legal in all 50 states. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Lets talk about kids. If same-sex marriage were legal, imagine how many children would be adopted and taken out of the foster systems. Let's say one woman has a biological child and have a partner (who's also a woman). If they live in a state where same sex marriage isn't legal, if the biological mother were to pass away, her partner wouldn't have the right to the child. That's putting ANOTHER...

Every respectable scientific organization in the world, including the American Psychological Association, says that sexual orientation is connected to biological factors and cannot be changed. Just as it is wrong to deny legal rights to blacks, women, and people born left-handed...

In this debate, make sure you include in your argument the following: 1. Show how there is a right to same sex marriage and how traditional marriage laws violate the equal protection clause. 2. Show how having gay marriage is more beneficial then banning it. 3. Show that gay marriage would benefit state interests. Also, you can cut and paste information from other debates you have been in to save your time, if you want. What is CIVIL marriage and the purpose of it: "Sexual unions o...
