Transgender shouldnt allowed because thats not a normal thing. we are created to be a couple, and if we have being a couple we'll have a child an then our child will have a child too. and thats the fact should we realize for.

Thank you for this topic. I'm happy to accept the challenge.

From dictionary.com:

transgender

noun
1.
a person appearing or attempting to be a member of the opposite sex, as a transsexual or habitual cross-dresser.

It follows, then, that a transgender marriage is one where one or both parties are appearing or attempting to be a member of the opposite sex.

If a couple decides to marry knowing that there will be no children from the union then that is their own concern. The world is overpopulated. Nobody has a duty to produce children.

Typical wedding vows mention having and holding in a range of conditions (better and worse, richer and poorer) until death, and promising to be faithful. There is no reason why transgender couples cannot adhere to these vows.
At my own wedding, according to the customs of that country, we agreed to be responsible for any children of the union. Note, ANY children. Had we been unable to reproduce we could have still kept our vows.

Transgender may be a normal thing after all. It exists all around the world. I've seen it in western society, in India, Bangladesh, Thailand and even in very traditional societies in South America.

A transgender marriage does no harm to society. I don't believe it harms the individuals involved, but even if does, in a free society adults should be allowed to shape their own lives for better or worse.
