- Frank Sinatra sang the lyrics “love and marriage go together like a horse and carriage. You can’t have one without the other.” And this is unquestionably true. When two people are in love, they should be able to openly express their love in marriage. Nevertheless, some people do not have the right to be married. A love between two of the same sex should not be discriminated and endure the benefits of marriage that heterosexuals have.
