The 14th amendment also bans states from enacting laws that restrict civil liberties and many people argue that marriage is a civil liberty. The government has no right to enforce the Biblical will of the church on citizens; therefore, why are many of the same-sex laws based around religion and what the bible says? Today there are eighteen states in addition to the District of Columbia that have current laws allowing same-sex marriage. Many of the states that have ruled same sex marriage to be legal find the ban against same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional. In the year 2013 alone, nine states ruled same-sex marriage to be legal.
There are many obstacles in the way of the national legalization of same-sex marriage. The most prevalent of these are the government’s current laws on the subject. Some of the laws that the government has ‘protecting marriage’ are nothing short of barbaric. Another obstacle to the national legalization of same-sex marriage is the current view society has on the topic, which is often that it should not be legal, though they don’t know why they feel that way. There are a few ways the national legalization of same-sex marriage can be brought about, and none of them are easy or will happen overnight.
Gay marriage should be legal worldwide. Gay marriage or same-sex marriage is when a man and man or women and a woman get married. Same-sex marriage impacts society in different types of ways, some people are affected by it because they think it is against the bible, others seem to have no impact or problem with same-sex marriage. However for the gay community it affects them, because in some states they are not allowed to marry the one they are in love with it. Also it impacts them because there are groups of people against same-sex marriage and the gay community is constantly being judged by people opposed to same-sex marriage.
Others see no correlation between mandates on marriages and religious freedoms. All opinions aside, this is an issue that the public simply isn’t very well informed about because there are other issues that have been seen as much more important, because they affect a greater amount of people. Despite other issues being in the public’s attention, the problems aroused by the prospect of gay marriage will soon make their presence known. The forefathers of our country inserted a clause into the Constitution known as the “full faith and credit” clause. Said clause (Article IV, Section 1, United States Constitution) insures that “full faith and credit” be given to the laws and judicial proceedings of all the states by all other states.
They cannot refuse to testify against their significant other in court. They also do not get social security and tax benefits that come along with being a married couple.

Accordingly, the constitutional right to marry cannot be subject to a majority vote. The Constitution does guarantee freedom of religion for those who see homosexuality as inconsistent with their religion, but it also states that religious beliefs cannot be the basis for anti-gay rights legislation.
But how is this related to whether or not homosexuals should be allowed to marry? Same-sex couples do have the privilege of adopting children to begin a family of their own. However, they are often rejected because of their unmarried status. Even if the government does not wish to provide some financial security for homosexual couples, it should not punish the children of such relationships.

This is unjust because a gay couple will receive benefits based on the state’s legal protections and will not receive the same amount of protections as that of an opposite-sex couple. If a gay or lesbian spouse was to need leave from work for an illness of his or her partner, they would not be allowed the benefit because the federal Family and Medical Leave Act only applies to married couples.
