In addition, if they fail to meet those expectations, they are then at the urge by the ceremonial leader as to whether or not they may continue with the “marriage”. In this essay I will argue how they are benefiting society and the discrimination that they are facing and why same sex couples should have the freedom to love and marry to their partner. Can you imagine how it would feel if you were told you could not marry the one you love? Many homosexual couples are facing this mayhem in their life. But did you know that this is a form of discrimination?
Men did shameful things with other men, and as a result of this sin, they suffered within themselves the penalty they deserved.” (New Living Translation, Romans 1:26-27).

Same sex couples look at being denied the right to legally marry each other as their freedom of speech being taken away, but in actuality they are only expressing their love. Legalizing gay marriage will not damage society. If same sex marriage were legal everywhere in the United States, society will still function normally and no family values will be lost. If gay marriage is legal in seventeen, why must the other thirty three states continue to ban same sex marriage? How can we all be equal if we are being denied certain rights because of who we love?

To express love for one another, even if it is of the same-sex, is an individual’s natural right and their own choice to make. It is factual for same-sex couples to have the rights to publicly celebrate their commitment the same way that heterosexual couples do. According to the Human Rights Campaign Foundation, many same-sex couples “Want the right to legally marry [and] honor their relationships in the greatest way our society has to offer.” As one can infer, it is only fair if the homosexual culture coexists with us rather than be alienated as a whole. Evidence can also be found in the article “Answers to Questions About Marriage Equality”  This article explains the many benefits that could affect children who grow in and around a homosexual household as well as the benefits and disadvantages that a homosexual couple has compared to those heterosexual around them. Allowing rights for the gay community is a big leap upon our half, for the other must be the acceptance the civilians are willing to provide.
There are more gay people today than there ever have been and that number is only increasing. Marriage is a way for two people to show their commitment towards each other, so it should not matter what their gender or sexual orientation is. Marriage is just one way for two people to show their love for another. Whether it is two men, two women, or a man and a woman, love is love. People against gay marriage do not have the right to deny people of showing their love for one another.
