First Round: Acceptance.
Second Round: 1st Constructive (Arguments are presented and refuted.)
Third Round: 2nd Constructive (New arguments can be presented but old arguments do not drop unless conceded to.)
Fourth Round: Rebuttals (Final rebuttals and a summary of debate are presented. Voters MUST be provided!)

Same Sex Marriage:

This debate will be about being For or Opposed to the legalization of same-sex marriage and nothing else. All citations must be noted ([1]) inside the arguments after quotation marks if necessary.

Definitions of words that may be argued specifically must be provided before using said words. If you use a word for a specific reason that word must be defined. If it is not, and your opponent infers it differently and presents a definition, you must use that definition. Conversely, if you would like to present a counter definition, you must explain why you meet it, and whether or not you meet the opponents definition as well.

Spelling and grammar will be voting issues and are valid arguments in this debate.

Good luck to Con, I look forward to an educational debate.
