That is what makes us such great country. We have our freedom to express who we are, but the gays do not because the older generations do not approve? There are so many things that are good about gay marriage. When gay marriage is allowed it is giving everyone their right to be married. This is important because we should all be able to get married when we see fit in our lives, no matter who we want our spouse to be.
Some may argue in the bible it states it is wrong to be involved in a gay marriage. If two people love each other why can they not get married? There are so many arguments that can be brought up to justify marriage and for couples to receive benefits like any other couple.

Throughout history gay marriage has been there, legal and illegal. Then the rise of Christianity began changing things and soon gay marriage became uncommon and a sin.

Marriage is a union of love, not a union of genders. Same-sex couples should be allowed to publicly celebrate their commitment in the same way as heterosexual couples. It should be legal because the gay community should have the same rights as everyone else does. Many argue that same-sex couples should have the ability as to the same marriage benefits and public acknowledgment enjoyed by heterosexual couples and that banning gay marriage is unconstitutional discrimination. People opposing gay marriage say, “We must protect traditional marriage and the traditional family.” Matthew McTighe of the Mainers United for Marriage debates responds by saying, “Prote... ... middle of paper ... ...g and legalizing gay marriage.
However all of the points may be arguable it still doesn’t change that fact that gay people are humans that love like any other person in this world and should not be excluded from marrying the person that they love. Same sex marriages should not be banned because it is untraditional; but should be recognized like any other marriage involves love and it might be different but we all should be recognized as equals. Same sex marriages should be legalized in all states because everyone has different views on the topic, but happiness makes the world go around amongst other things and no one should be deprived of their happiness no matter their sexual preferences. Same sex marriages should not be banned because it is untraditional; but should be recognized like any other marriage involves love and it might be different but we all should be recognized as equals.

If they are the same sex or opposite sex both parents can handle decision making and parenting without worry. This a free country anybody and everybody have the right to get married whether they’re gay or not, i feel like a gay marriage is a real relationship because they basically are doing the same thing the opposite sex are doing but it just that they can't have any kids but if they wanted to they can. Whether they’re the same sex or opposite sex they still have control over their relationship and can take responsibility of their own action. A relationship is about trust, communication, and being able to commit to your partner the same sex can give all that so i don’t know why it matter about gay marriage being a legitimate relationship.
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?
The bible says that a marriage is a sacred bond between a man and a woman. There are many different types of religions and everyone who wants to get married regardless of their religion can (if they are straight). In America one of our human rights is freedom of religion.(Sadowski). Now why is just one religion (Christianity) affecting the reason why two people can’t get married? Not saying that everyone who is gay doesn’t have a religion, just saying that gays are humans like everyone else.
Denying gay marriage affects gay and lesbian couples and lets people think that is acceptable to discriminate against them. Even though same-sex couples are not natural, people should be able to get married to whomever they want no matter the gender because you can’t invariably choose who you fall in love with and everyone should be equal and not discriminated against. All over the nation gays are discriminated against for many reasons, they are asked various questions such as if they can raise kids, provide a stable environment, and if their child’s development is effected by their parent’s sexual orientation. Statistics show that children raised by homosexual couples thrive just as well, some even better than heterosexual couple’s children. Their families are not really divergent from any other traditional family.
Pew Research, 12 May 2016. http://www.pewresearch.org/fact-tank/2016/05/12/support-steady-for-same-sex-marriage-and-acceptance-of-homosexuality/. However, straight marriage is not the right thing to do. Just because a person is happy, does not mean it is morally correct. The article “Gay Marriage” states that Americans still oppose to gay marriage because it violates their religious beliefs (2). Yes, everyone in the world needs to feel happy and accepted, but sometimes it is unnecessary acts that get people where they are in the world.
