In conclusion, the era in which someone is born in, a person’s religious background, and an individual’s exposure to gay and lesbians are all factors that influence how someone feels about same-sex marriage. In today’s society we are much more accepting to gay marriage due to the amount of exposure we see on a day-to-day basis, but many of our parents and grandparents are against it due to the lack of exposure they experienced growing up as well as their religion. Religion undeniably plays a significant role in positions about any subject, and a major influence on a specific person’s views on same-sex marriage. Regardless how someone’s parents and grandparent’s feel toward gay rights, everyone is entitled to her/his own opinion and belief, and we should respect everyone’s views as we expect and hope our views are respected.
A homosexual couple can give much love to a child, sometimes even more than a heterosexual couple. (Subulica)” Adoption Statistics have argued that homosexuals raised children will find it more challenging to learn suitable gender roles in the absence of male and female roles. However, I think these children will not be entirely withdrawn of models from the opposite sex to their parents'. They will still have contact with grandparents, teachers, and friends. If a homosexual family can give the same love that, a heterosexual family can give to a child then why not let them adopt and go through the same process that a regular family will go through.
Also, the ramifications of the legalization of gay marriage, both for gays and society, will be examined. Finally, I will refute arguments against same-sex marriage. Society benefits by having fewer "closet gays." "Closet gays" are homosexuals who try to abide by society's standards, and marry a partner of the opposite sex (Harbinger 683). However, due to the different sexual orientations of the two partners, problems often occur, causing emotional harm to"closet gays," their partners, and their children (Harbinger 683).
If you happy with the person you love then go for it and start your life together then again it’s not right to marry your same sex. It’s a sin in the bible. Those who self-righteously call those opposed to gay marriage hateful should get off their high horse. Religious marriage is by definition between a man and a woman. Same sex marriages should be happy like any other couple no matter if it’s man and man or woman and man.
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.
The gay guys who give sperm to these lesbian couples so that they can make a child is an amazing thing. It’s not just some kind of transaction. The lesbian couple most of the time wants the donor to be part of the child’s life. And most of the time the donor wants to be. This might not be normal but it’s considered a family.
There has been many strides made in the fight for gay marriage as of lately and it is not as opposed as it was before. However, when it comes to same sex parenting many still have some form of resistance. In today’s society it should be irrelevant to have the typical 1950’s type family. With the divorce rate being fifty percent there is a good amount of men and women who are single parents. The traditional American view on parenting is outdated and same-sex couples should be able to adopt as equally as heterosexual couples.
The world interprets the definition of family in a variety of ways throughout their cultures. When thinking of a modern family most people would automatically think of family as a group of individuals living together in a household or multiple people from the same descent. The majority of society was raised thinking heterogeneous monogamy-different sex marriage allowed only one spouse- was the only type of marriage allowed. In this society people believe many different types of marriages are acceptable such as monogamy, polygamy, public and private families. Even most people would disagree but a family does not have to be a wife and husband with children.
Now a healthy and rational family will come to a mutual agreement and go on with their business. However , there are those dysfunctional families that will continue to feud and cause more conflict resulting in a split family with more issues than they began with. A University of California, Davis, study has found that youths who have positive relationships with their pa rents have a tendency to to have steady and satisfying relationships in their early adult marriages as well as romantic relationships. Researchers, who began studying 265 individuals in the 1990s, found that nurturing parents contributed to the future success of their children’s young adult romantic relationships. A family brings its member together and when people get together they can do anything.
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.
