Have you ever been treated so unfairly, but knew there was very little you could do to change it? If so, then you know exactly how many of the homosexuals in the world feel about the right to marry. Many homosexuals feel that this right has been kept just out of reach for them, due to others who despise them. These individuals believe that being gay is wrong, immoral and disgusting; but this is definitely not the case. Gay marriage should be allowed in the United States because this decision supports the idea of equal rights, the effectiveness of children with homosexual parents, and this act would do no harm to society.
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.
Gay marriage should be legal worldwide. Gay marriage or same-sex marriage is when a man and man or women and a woman get married. Same-sex marriage impacts society in different types of ways, some people are affected by it because they think it is against the bible, others seem to have no impact or problem with same-sex marriage. However for the gay community it affects them, because in some states they are not allowed to marry the one they are in love with it. Also it impacts them because there are groups of people against same-sex marriage and the gay community is constantly being judged by people opposed to same-sex marriage.
Or maybe they were a couple of letters of the same sex engaging in a homosexual relationship. A “W” is two “V” s in a civil union, but the world is not ready to flip that on its head and let them go for the big “M” (Kintz). Not only does some humans have a problem with individuals being gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people also has an issue with same sex marriage. Love and marriage shouldn 't have a gender to it, because love just happens. People shouldn 't sacrifice their happiness in marrying someone who doesn 't make them happy just to be accepted and not be judged.
Yet this preferred to a gay couple free of criminal history that in fact does embrace morals? If a same-sex couple can provide a loving and caring home, then where is harm done? The child, as well as the love for the child, must be a priority in every family, no matter the gender of the parents. Gay marriage is defined as a legal union between members of the same sex. Ten percent of Americans, because of their sexual orientation are denied the right to marry.
Proponents argue that same-sex couples should have access to the same marriage benefits and public acknowledgment enjoyed by heterosexual couples and that prohibiting gay marriage is unconstitutional discrimination (ProCon, 2012). Ultimately, studies show that homosexual families are able to live just as productive, if not better off, than families of heterosexual parents. In order to guarantee an atmosphere of absolute religious liberty, this country's founders also mandated the strict separation of church and state (Anti Defamation League, 1999). In a country where marriage is declining and those who do marry are increasingly well- educated and well-to-do, it is a poor form of social protest to decline to administer legal marriages. Everybody needs these protections; a promise to God will not make a deadbeat parent pay child support.
Specifically, gay and lesbians couples are denied the right to marry even if they are upstanding citizens. They are held at an unfair disadvantage simply because of their sexual orientation. This discrimination must end because gay and lesbian couples are law-abiding citizens too, who should be offered the same rights as heterosexual couples. Same sex marriage should be legalized because it is their civil rights, it encourages strong family value and leads to the increasing number of child adoption, and the same sex marriage also brings a lot of financial benefits. Gay marriage is currently legal in a small percentage of counties worldwide.
Legalizing homosexuals will bring the world to peace with this issue because if not, people will still keep fighting for it. I think gay marriage should be legalized and finally bring justice to an for the gays. Yay for gay marriages. Works Cited "10 Reasons Why Homosexual "Marriage" is Harmful and Must be Opposed."

Homosexual couples should be granted the same freedom of rights as the rest of the nation.

Finally gay marriage is believed to be unconstitutional due to traditional religious practices, although the United States constitution promotes the freedom of religion as one of the amendments. In the next vote on gay marriage needs to be allowed nation wide.

These are important grounds,... ... middle of paper ... ... wish, but may not be allowed to marry them. To the government, marriage is a legal contract and love is an emotional connection.
