This being said, a great example of this would be a person that has mental retardation, they are still allowed to get married when they want to in their lives, so why not gay people. It is all the same, they are born this way; it is not a choice that they are able to make. I think that is a great way to show that our country really is diverse, that we see all people for people and not what their religion is, or who they love. Now I do think that there are some drawbacks to gay marriage. I think that gay marriage, or just two gays in a relationship c... ... middle of paper ... ... someone wanted them to, it just happens.
Even with people’s disapproval to gay marriage, there are others who are strongly for it. Same sex marriages are able to benefit the society in many ways such as political, economical and even socially. Society’s overall viewpoint of same-sex marriage has evolved throughout time socially from negative reasons to positive outcomes. Many people were opposed to the idea of gay marriage because of religious beliefs and traditional values that has been set long before. Although with people opposing to the rights of gay marriage , there are those who are now accepting the idea of equality amongst its people,Wade observes a research in an article which states, “Fourteen percent of Americans say that they used to oppose same-sex marriage, but they now support it”.
Since then, views have changed and people began to realize love is love and marriage between homosexuals should be legal to maintain equality within the states. Gay marriage should be legalized within the United States because it will provide happiness and equality for many people. First of all, the main concern with gay marriage has been the religious views of many people. Gay marriage has been stuck in the closet (pun intended) because the government tries to keep everyone politically and religiously happy. Second, states are beginning to realize that gay marriage is not the worst thing in the world and are slowly legalizing it.
This situation may improve as more states legalize same-sex marriage and thus, in turn, permit adoption by both members of a same-sex couple. According to the Family Equality Council, many states have policies that have the effect of restricting foster parenting or adoption by gays and lesbians. Policies include allowing preference for heterosexual married c... ... middle of paper ... ...ples who are as committed, as monogamous, as responsible, as loving a group of parents as any heterosexual couple that I know," he said. "And in some cases, more so." His support for gay marriage was itself a landmark turn, but just as notable was its indirect affirmation of gay couples as parents, which served to rebut the standard argument against gay marriage, that it risks the well being of children and the family.
Sheila's concern is that the gay lifestyle is encouraged to be permissive because of society's rejection of same-sex marriage. She has a friend, Alice, who has had thirty different partners. Alice says that changing so often is allowable because there are no legal binding contracts to hold one in a relationship. Alice feels that if same-sex relationships had some sort of binding contract, she would be more careful in entering into a serious relationship. So, if the country would legalize same-sex m... ... middle of paper ... ...want a family, and want to be accepted by society just as heterosexual people want that special person, want to raise children, and want to be accepted by society.
Introduction Gay is defined as “pertaining to, or exhibiting sexual desire or behavior directed toward a person or persons of one's own sex.” Or in other words; a man and a man, or a woman and a woman, loving each other like a man and a woman typically would. Naturally, as a man and a woman would want to do when they love each other, gay couples have been getting married. However, not everyone agrees with the gay’s lifestyle; in both government and religions, the gay lifestyle has been banned. As a matter of fact, the gay community has seen a lot of discrimination over the past few years during their “equal rights” campaign, such as hate crimes, and a lack of equal employment opportunities. Being married is more than just a title when it comes to the benefits of being married.
Gay marriage is a legitimate relationship and gay people should just ignore what people have to say about them and keep loving and caring for each other unconditionally. Imagine living in a world where you are not accepted, now imagine how someone that is gay feels. These people have to go and create their own personal community to be accepted as if they are doing something wrong. At least half of Americans today believe that gay men and lesbians have a constitutional right to marry. Beyond the constitutional questions a record high 59 percent say they support same sex marriage while 34 percent are o... ... middle of paper ... ...gay they also can take care of children, children are already being born to, adopted by, and raised by gay couples.
The topic of same-sex marriage, or gay marriage, is extremely divisive in today's society. This paper will address some of the issues surrounding gay marriage. Many in favor of same-sex marriage suggest that gay couples should have the same marital benefits as heterosexual couples, which is simply a civil rights issue. In contrast, those against same-sex marriage see this concept as a moral matter, which violates traditional ethical standards. Since the beginning of time, most cultures have acknowledged marriage a unity between men and women.
Many also oppose homosexuality because it is a sin, but it seems that many fail to remember that comparing themselves with others, disrespecting parents, and committing adultery are also sins too. With these reasons considered, same-sex marriages should be legalized. I do not understand why there is a need for our whole nation to vote whether or not a couple should be able to marry each other because they are homosexual. Love has no boundaries, no restrictions, for it is free for everyone to experience, so support the legalization of same-sex marriages.
Most of society will say they support equal rights for homosexuals. Ask the same members if they support gay marriage and they become hesitant. Recently the majority of Americans will vote for the Constitutional Amendment, which puts a ban on gay marriage. Ironically, these same Americans do believe in the equal rights to the gay community just like any other heterosexual citizen. In my personal opinion, gay marriage should be globally accepted The biggest misunderstanding in this hot topic is that those of the gay community have a "choice" to whom they can feel attracted to but simply choose to be gay.
