Gay marriage should be illegal and should not be allowed to be in America because gay marriage is harmful to a persons life and there surroundings and affects there relationships in there family and friends. A way that gay marriage affects someone in there family is because if an adult tell there parent that they were going to get married but it was a same sex marriage then ultimately either the mother or the father will most likely not accept it and will turn the child down unlike supporting them.

Gay marriage should not be illegal because its expressing your feelings in the way you want to.No one should arrest you because you want to get married to the same sex and no one should care its your private life and if don't want any one to know then you don't have to tell anyone. Also if gay marriage was illegal all over the U.S than people would earthier be alone or marry the opposite sex but not be happy

Gay marriage should be illegal because as i said before parents may act differently toward there children if they were gay and also may have an effect on the child to depart from the family rather than being closer and more connected. Another reason why gay marriage should be illegal is because if a man and a man were to be married it would be pointless because they cant produce children together which would mean no real bond between the two.

Any parent love their kid no matter what, if they say that they are gay they would not kick them out but accept it even though you don't support it and if the parent dose not support you that shows that they really don't love and that you should not even stay with them. Also marriage is not all about reproducing it is about love and that all it should be about not making babies.

From the begging of time man and women would marry and reproduce and it has been this way until today. So I ask you this why should there be gay marriage if our ancestors have not been doing it. Wouldn't be the correct thing to do if we follow in our ancestors footsteps and follow there path. It is the only correct thing to do and also gay marriage poses some major disturbances in our community and might make a problem. For example if gay marriage was encouraged in young adults and little kids, then our future will be in a pot hole because if a man and a man married they cant produce children and if a women and a women married they wouldn't produce children either.

If they want children so much then they can adopt they don't need to Mary someone just for kids, and no we should not always follow our ancestors because of all the bad things they have done like slavery,segregation ,wars and other things like that. not everyone would be gay in the future if they truly have the feelings of liking the same sex they should be proud and not scarred about telling anyone.

Adoption is always an option for married couples that are gay. In addition the people who are gay have an opportunity to live a normal life. kids who's parents have died can be adopted by gay parents.

Yes adoption can be an option for gay couples but what about the children who are in a foster home or up for adoption and they get adopted by gay parents, and the child does not like it either because the way it was raised, or religion, or even because of the simple fact that the child does not like it. Also gay parents who adopt should not be teaching the child to be gay or live life like that, but instead it should be the child's decision to be gay, and not the parents. Furthermore gay marriage should be illegal in the U.S. because of the simple fact that it is harmful to the married couple, and to the family and future generations. So I say this would you want you and your children to be gay and to the next generations? Thank you

it is better for a child to be with a gay parents than without any parents because they can end committing crimes and going to jail or dropping out of school. statistics sagest that 40 - 50 percent of the kids never finish high school and 66 percent would be homeless in jail or dead. The kid that they adopt dose not have to follow their religions its his choice. You cant be forced to be gay by your parents its a felling you get in your heart for what you really want,and if someone feels that way there should be no law saying that he or she cant its a free country and if they want to be gay they should be allowed to.
