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. For example, some people think that letting homosexual become an official union redefines the idea of marriage all together. (Rauch) Rauch states, “ I think the best definition of marriage is the one that most married people sign up for in their vows; “To have and to hold, from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness or in health, until death do us part.” Extending the boundaries to include gay couples does not weaken that definition-it reinforces it.” The gay community embodies the idea of loving no matter who they are we should not pass judgment on them because they are not the pretty picture of a happy ma and women behind their white picket fence with children. Most Americans often believe that same sex marriages will diminish the value of the marriage itself. Which is a false conclusion based on a bias premise.
It consists of devastating and even possible life threatening consequences most would not think of. But, Despite national laws and international agreements, child marriage remains a real and present threat to the human rights, lives and health of children, especially for girls, in more than a hundred countries. Thus, if people around the world gain more knowledge and interest on child marriage, the chances of countries prohibiting child marriage may increase. Ultimately allowing girls and boys to grow up and marry who and when they desire. While child marriage may be getting numerous families out of poverty, many families do not know of the life threatening consequences that come with marrying at a young age.
Same sex marriages should be happy like any other couple no matter if it’s man and man or woman and man. But, god also said don’t do it. Works Cited http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Same-sex_marriage
The recognition of same-sex marriage is a political, social, and religious issue. Because of this same-sex marriage is a very controversial topic. Legal acknowledgement of same sex marriage is commonly referred to as marriage equality. Many advocates of marriage equality argue that laws restricting marriage to only heterosexuals discriminate against homosexuals. On the other hand advocates against same-sex marriage argue that it would undo long-standing traditions and change the meaning of marriage in a damaging manor.
Also, another cause why homosexuals want the right to marry their spouse is because they are being cheated of rights. Although, two people love each other, if they cannot marry they are losing rights. Marriage gives both spouses benefits, “same-sex couples in long-term, committed relationships pay higher taxes and are denied basic protection and rights granted to married heterosexual couples” (90). It is unfair to couples of the same-sex to lose rights based on sexuality. They are... ... middle of paper ... ...an” (97).
For example, when people are not compatible or right for each other, there will be a lot of fights and arguments in their marriage, as they might have a lot of things that they disagree on. This will not be fair for both the parents or the kids, and might eventually end up with a divorce. Which can be traumatizing for the whole family, and best be prevented by thinking more about their relationship than the pregnancy, on if they want to get married or not, in the first place. Grandparents and other family members also plays a big role in this, as they are the ones who usually pushes the new parents to get married when they got pregnant. When they should just be supporting the couple in making their own decision on what they think will be best for their situation.
Justification for same - sex marriage To begin with, gay marriage has been a controversial issue in today 's society. It seems to me that the government finds it difficult to accept same - sex couples into marriage. By the government prohibiting same - sex couples from getting married, they are denying them freedom that every other American has. "Marriage is a unique legal status conferred by and recognized by governments all over the world. It brings with it a host of reciprocal obligations, rights and protections" (National Organization of Women, 2012, p, 1).
All the States need to allow for all citizens to have equal rights with the United States Constitution and without defending conservatives or religious associations. Marriage signifies love to same-sex couples in the same way as it signifies to everyone. Same-sex couples would like to get married to make a lifetime commitment to that special somebody they love and want to protect their families. When a couple gets married it is one of the few times when a couple can make a public promise to and in front of their friends and family to love and be accountable for each other. Same-sex couples may seem dissimilar from heterosexual couples, however they share similar beliefs.
And here is where another controversial topic plays into role. If you guessed abortion, you’re right. Some heterosexual couples, the ones who are able to reproduce and create stable families, are killing society but yet, homosexual couples that try to adopt and raise a child cannot even do this action. This is why I do not agree with her statement. She demands such things from a homosexual couple in order to get marriage but yet heterosexual couples cannot even accomplish what she is demanding today.
Too many people are restricted from a happy life with the one they love, because strangers want the world to be as they want. Children can be pushed in the wrong direction with an unloving family. And each person across the nation beliefs are different. Same sex marriage should be legalized in all fifty states across the United States of America.
