No they should not. The government telling you that since you are a man you can not marry a man or since you are a woman you can not marry a woman is like taking your baby to get a vaccine and some random stranger taking him away from you because someone told them it might cause autism.

Human are created to have 2 sex types Male and Female so I don't see why we need to marry someone from our own sex

It's not about weather you believe it's right or wrong. It's about if people have the right to tell you if it's right or wrong. Please understand the topic of the debate before arguing.

Not to mention that I government or not, government will mandate, on this issue primarily, will let handle it in a more democratic than conservative approach; as to say that the people will influence the politicians and even vice versa. I mean is it not a good thing that the government also has the authority to legalize gay marriage? Should government never have interfered with slavery as well?

It's not necessarily a need.
But, when a man falls in love with another man, or a woman falls in love with another woman, who are you to say that they can't get married and spend the rest of their lives together and be happy?
Just because they don't "need" to, doesn't mean that they shouldn't be allowed to.
Do men NEED to marry women?
No.
No one NEEDS to get married. It's a privilege that everyone should have.
