Love is love. How is it affecting you if they get married. It probably wasn't their choice if they are of another sexual orientation than heterosexual. Some of them actually have to pretend to like the opposite sex to fit in and that angers me. It's sad that teen pregnancy is more acceptable than being gay.
Everybody knows that people can be gay - even everyone borns bisexual- .Everyone accepts that , so they're falling love each other - not like some other allowed marriages - and want to live together or already they are and they want to hold a wedding . Isn't it human right ? Anyone can get marry with someone even there're still marriages allowed with more than one woman , sometimes even not woman with child.So there's no harmful side of this marriages for anyone, why even this topic still in discussion
Really, how is gay marriage so detrimental to the institution of marriage? Need the statistics be quoted on the numbers of heterosexual marriages that end in divorce, not to mention those that don't result in children, those where the spouses abuse each other and/or their children, etc? The sanctity of marriage is about as intact as the idea of job stability. If you find someone or somewhere you want to be with for the rest of your life, good luck. You're gonna need it.
This is ,in my opinion, the same as the civil rights movements in the 60's. The people who oppose this will be looked back on as poorly as the people who were against rights for minorities, interracial marriage etc... Those who say it damages the sanctity of marriage are clearly ignoring the fact that so many couples get divorced anyway. In the end any people who are of the age of consent should be able to marry one another regardless of sex.
If 2 people love each other dearly then they can marry they should express there love in marry not have to hide it from the world. In all of time that man has been hear a man and man or a woman and a woman that love each other. And they could be gay or lesbian when did it turn from perfectly explicable to no you cant love each other. We (I come from new zealand so referring to New Zealand) are 1 of 7 country's that let it happen and that singles that its OK and it will be good for the world in the long term if we accept it maby other countrys will start to accept it too.
Religion and Government are the big dictators of lifestyles, and if we take out religion, then all we have left is the government and its people. Nobody really cares who people married. They may hate who people marry, but they won't care about it.
Marriage is a choice between two adults, and if they choose to be stuck to each other for the rest of their life, then so be it. The pain and happiness will be all theirs to endure and enjoy. Straight people have no better luck at marriage happiness anyways, because a successful marriage is dependent on if you're straight or gay, but more so on if the two individuals know how to sustain that relationship.
Yes if straight people can marry so can they. It's mostly about basic human rights. Men are created equally, they should have all the basic rights as other people without being judged. Homosexuals doesn't harm anyone or even your marriage if they so wish to get married by their choice. Everyone should have the same rights.
If gays marry, it will not affect the antigay people at all. Are they going to come and live in your house? NO. Will they even know you? NO. Antigays' lives will not be changed.
Also, it is a basic human right to get married. Do you let single parents marry again? What about divorcees? You don't argue against child marriage, yet you feel a need to challenge gay marriage! Gays are no different than other people, they should have a right to get married.
I think the issue with "gay marriage" is in the term marriage. It is treated as both a religious and legal term at the same time and that is what has created the large rift.
To maintain the separation of church and state, the government should stop issuing "marriage licenses". Instead they should offer civil unions to BOTH gay and straight couples. This does more to remove religion from the issue without treating homosexuals as second class citizens.
Just as gay couples have the right to be together, so to do people like Christians have the right to (what is to them) a sacred practice. A civil union would solve the rift and get the government out of a large mess. Most gays don't really care deemed "married", just to receive the same benefits, recognition and legitimacy that married couples experience. If gay couples want gay marriage for the pure sake of the title, then they should bring it up with the churches not the government.
