What is 'right'?
To be 'right' must something simply not be 'wrong'? Perhaps it is so but marriage itself was never wrong or right to begin with, it was a social construct invented for purposes that suited societies' needs at the time across the world. Some fancied polygamy but most remained deadset on monogamous matrimony and on the idealism of lifelong commitment to one partner. Whether this is right or wrong, the question asked today is if gay marriage is wrong or right and unfortunately it is wrong. Marriage was designed to ensure that offspring stood the highest chance of surviving and is why we became the dominant species on Earth despite being physically weaker than most mammals our size or even bigger than us. By ensuring that pairs of humans competed over their offspring surviving and excelling, it made natural selection occur via intelligent adults competing over barely conscious babies from the get-go. The best school, the best music grade and many other facets began being drilled into children and it did work albeit being torturous for the geniuses and oddities who didn't find it easy to melt into the mould set out for them by their family. Nonetheless, marriage was in no way whatsoever intended to destroy our species by ensuring loyalty to a partner that it is biologically impossible to reproduce with. Surrogacy ruins the entire purpose of marriage as does adoption in actual fact. The idea was that the children of dumb parents stayed dumb and were raised to be good at manual labor while the children of smarter parents stayed smart and perpetuated to naturally select their own cliques and somewhat selectively breed within them.

I hereby conclude that gay marriage is not right but rather that it is understandably accepted as a fair enough 'wrong' in a society that is evolving morally and embracing several non-traditional and outlandish ideas in this world of innovation and progress.

Gay Marriage is right, marriage is a sign of love and is a way to promise to be faithful to the other half. is it different for two men to declare love for one another? No. A man should be able to declare love for a woman just as much as he could declare love for a man. so why is it classed as wrong, the same with two women. I believe that Gay Marriage is the exact same as Marriage between a woman and a man. In the end it is two people promising to be faithful for the rest of their time in front of a gathering of people.
In conclusion all marriage is the same concept so why is one 'wrong'?

All marriage is wrong
Pro hasn't explained why marriage itself is right. It is a mechanism by which two people promise to never have to try as hard to impress the other ever again from that point on as they now have the comfort of a legally binding promise to remain loyal to one another (or it used to be that significant at least). Gay marriage is no less irrational and damning to a couple than heterosexual marriage.

I completely agree that Gay Marriage should not be a problem for anyone. It should not be a concern for anyone unless you are two guys or two girls wishing to marry each other... Why should someone's preferences or choices affect your every day life. Gay marriage isn't a problem for the government, it is a problem for those who so strongly stand against it. And why? Straight men, this ones for you, if you're 'afraid' of gay men then you are only afraid of them treating the same way that you treat women. Same goes for you ladies out there who are 'afraid' of lesbians. Just because you do not want to stick your fat tongues up another woman's vagina doesn't mean that other women don't want to. Rant. Done.
