In the end, everyone should be treated equal. It is just simply wrong to deny any human the right to marry someone of the same sex; it is unlawful, unjust, and unfair. In the future same sex marriage must be legal all over the United States. Same sex couples just want happiness just like couples of the opposite sex.

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.
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.
Allowing gay marriage would serve to honor the Constitution. The future of this debate will decision any different from what it is today; the Constitution will remain a guideline that inherently insists on equal treatment for all human being especially in democratic society. My intentions in writing this argumentative essay were to dictate that it is that nation 's responsibility to acknowledge all unions, instead discriminating couples on their sex. Homosexuals, who are in love, have the fundamental right to commit to each other and have it legally recognized by the United States government. Remember "love doesn 't have eyes; it doesn 't go by race or gender.
Marriage is something that will assure equality and rights – all people have according to our Constitution. The constitution specifically says that the government cannot make laws based on religious factors, and the fact that gay couples cannot marry even though they love and have needs the same way straight couples do is hypocritical of that First Amendment right. Church and state should be completely separate. Church laws and morals are unrealistic in today’s society. It is 2011, not the 1940’s.
Same-sex couple want to have the same martial rights and families as heterosexual couples. Some homosexual couples are passing away and their partners are losing their rights to claim their partner’s assets. The current approach for same-sex couple marriage needs to be changed because individuals are letting their religious beliefs pass laws that restrict homosexual couples from becoming married and have the same rights as married heterosexual couples. The reasoning given from individuals behind this is that marriage should be one man and one woman for the children’s sake. 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 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.
Such legal moves, as well as the efforts by lesbian and gay couples to be recognized as such, face denunciation from some conservative voices who assert that by nature and divine will only relationships between men and women can be considered "natural". And, to be honest, there is also an unease expressed by some lesbian and gay activists who, recalling the critique of patriarchy made by 1970's feminism, see "marriage" as an irretrievably heterosexual institution. Same-sex marriages should be legal everywhere in the United States of America. According to the Constitution, marriage is a civil right that all Americans are born with. Our country has decided by passing the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in 1996 that two people of the same gender cannot get married.

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.
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.
