This is a debate on whether it would affect your life or not. But any way Amendment 14 Section 1 says:All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside. No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any state deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.http://www.law.cornell.edu...

youre probably gay i dont know why u would be defending it so much. its in the constitution many religions forbid it its just not human. and how do you know it wouldnt affect me? you dont know that it can affect me. if your gay you shouldnt marry a other guy and even if it does get legallized it shouldnt be called marraige. maybe something on the lines of gay partnership thats not marriage. its ridiculous how ANYONE would even call it marriage

Actually I'm not gay.
The researchers found that indeed, same-sex unions aren't bringing down the venerated institution of marriage. The rates of opposite-sex marriage did not differ in states where same-sex marriage or civil union were legalized in the time period analyzed.
"We conclude that there is no relationship between implementation of same sex marriage or strong or weak same sex union laws and rates of opposite sex marriage," the researchers write. They had hypothesized that there could be a jump in the marriage rate with same-sex marriage laws directly after legalization, because of movements like the National Marriage Boycott where LGBT allies pledge to forgo marriage until same-sex marriage becomes legal, but the data didn't bear that theory out.

Also it doesn't matter what religion says. Your religion shouldn't affect other people. You can't enforce your religion on other people.

i dont care what you say. if your gay you shouldnt be able to have a marriage. it is a mental condition you are born with. gay people shouldnt get their own marriage; end of story
