There are several reasons why homosexuals feel strongly about wanting to be legally married, why wouldn't there be? One reason that is probably the most commonly heard is, they want to legally show their love for each other by having a marriage license. Gay people want the right to marry like anybody else, and for the same reasons too. They are in love and want to be with this person for the rest of their lives. Even though it is possible to do this without being married, they want to be able to honor their relationship with their partner publicly.
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.
“The real question that should be debated is not whether gay marriage should be allowed, but rather, is marriage something we need anymore?” this quote was said by David Vaklis addressing that if people aren’t going to accept homosexuals, then why should we have marriage. The debate is whether people will accept homosexuals, and, will gay marriages be legalized across the United States and not just in certain areas. Even though it is against traditional marriage religion, gay marriage shall be legalized because being in love with the same sex shouldn’t be a problem and why shouldn’t everyone be treated equally. People are against it because of the “image” of our country if we legalize it worldwide, how America as a nation would look. This could start so many new problems but solve many.
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. Even through, president Obama legalize same sex marriage on June 26, 2015 in all 50 state, there still individuals who are opposing this law. If president Obama believe that everyone was created equal and that he had made the union a little more perfect, why are other people trying to fight and screw up the almost perfect America.
They are just like everyone else, with feeling, needs and emotion and they wanted to be treated like we want to be. Nowhere in the constitution does it states that marriage is only something certain people can have. The only problem society have with this is that they believe it is “not right”, but what is right anyways? The way we have lived our lives all along, by what our religion, beliefs or is it what our peers have told us. Given the trend of greater acceptance of gay marriage, the issue of whether to legalize same-sex marriage naturally arises.
Opposite sex marriages spouses are gay, but cover it with legal marriage. Once they find out marriage is authorized, they could subdivision off from their husband and wife to get the pleasure they really want. The threats to marriage as a body will harm civilization especially children. We’re not just talking about one marriage. Those who argue against the same sex marriages insist that marriage is ordered towards the reproduction of children and that the legal provisions given to marriage are given with that end in view.
Sullivan's article argues, "Gay men and lesbians are citizens, entitled, like everyone else, to equal protection-no special rights, but simple equality" (p. 25). He writes that gay men and women want to marry for the same reason that straight people want to marry, for love. Sullivan writes, "And we (gay men and women) want to commit to that person in front of our family and country for the rest of our lives" (p. 25). He goes on to write that letting gays marry would not change the rights of others, ?Throughout American history, marriage has been between a man and a woman, and in many ways our society is built upon that institution. But none of that need change in the slightest?
Gay marriage should be legalized in all states and countries, it has been held off for too long. Moreover, there are several reasons why homosexuals feel strongly about wanting to be legally married. One reason that is most commonly heard is, they want to legally show their love for each other by having a marriage license. Homosexuals want the right to marry like anybody else, and for the same reasons too. They are in love and want to spend their lives with this person.
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.
