Marriage has been the social agreement that has provided organization and meaning to people’s lives. Throughout most of America’s history, religion has influenced most of its laws and policies. Even though, religion and state are constitutionally separate, politicians still tend to use religious influence to make policies and laws. For example, issues on abortion and the death penalty debates have been influenced by religious institutions. According to religious connotations, marriage is defined as the socially legalized union between heterosexual couples, comprised of a man and a woman, which in the future will procreate and raise a family.
