This is a debate that Gay Marriage should not be legal where limits are to be set for Californian law and customs.
Gay Marriage is defined as being: Lawful Marriage between 2 people of same gender.

There are 3 points supporting gay marriage:
1. First and foremost, America in general is founded on the civil liberties and freedom for all including for gay people to be allowed to marry.

2. Current California law makes gay marriage illegal. This however, violates the 1st Amendment as well as the general goal for the Constitution to have "the right to pursue happiness." (See

3. California' diversity (see shows the cultural heritage and diverse ideas of the people living there. Making gay marriage legal would allow for these diverse ideas to be truly shown as a complete image including for marriage between couples. The character of Californian people shows how they want the spectrum of ideas to be expressed.

We have a right to marry who we love and it shouldnt be up to someone else to tell you otherwise, and who you can and cannot love. Whether you are straight, bisexual or gay, you have to right to love and a legal marriage. I am for gay marriage completly!
