code 23443346 Gay marriage should be legal because as woman and man, all individuals have the same right in society. Same-sex couples can make a good based family; because it is just a way to make official a common union nowadays, even with the religious issue. It is not related to polygamy; and because love matters and it does not change the fact the sex of its object or the person who experiences it. The first reason about why same sex marriage should be legal is because a same sex couple can really be a strong family unit. It is showed that a same-sex family can be just as loving and supportive as any other family. People against a gay couple family says its not good for children to be raised in that kind of enviroment and they believe gay parents will raise gay children because straight parents just raise straight children. Yet it is not true because human sexual choice isnt a choice and you can't change that. Studies have shown children living in a same-sex home are higher socially and academically with fewer social problems and agressiveness. The children end up being more open minded and accepting of all things different. Homosexuality is not made, forced, or even "recruited" its just who someone is. Another reason is also because marriaga is supposed to be about procreating and you cant do that in a same-sex relationship. On the other hand, the amount of couples who are infertile or chooses to not have children have increased. Homosexual couples are having a positive affect on society because they are giving kids, who have no family or someone to love them, a loving home. Another reason same-sex marriage should be legal is because it is fair for all individuals to have the same rights in society. People should be allowed to love whoever they want no matter the gender. By states outlawing same-sex marriage they are going against the Declaration of Independence. The Declaration clearly states "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness".Meaning everyone should be equal and have a chance at happiness. No matter how someone feel about the reasoning of the decision, its results is clear: homosexuals are not different from the rest.

Gay Marriage and the Constitution
Is it okay to not believe in gay marriage, yet at the same time support the constitutional rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness for homosexual couples? Even though most churches' beliefs conflict with marrying same-sex partners, government should not deny a person's right to their happiness; because any person, no matter race, color, sex, religion or sexual…
Many people are against same sex marriage because they think it will change the world and views on traditional marriage. What people fail to realize is that gay marriage is not at all harmful. Gay marriage should be legalized and accepted because there are no negative effects on children and society, it was historically accepted in the past and gays and lesbians deserve to be treated equally like everyone else.
Most people aren’t aware that same-sex marriage was once…
Ask just about anyone. They will all tell you they're in favor of equal rights for homosexuals. Just name the situation, and ask. They will all say, yes, gays should have the same rights in housing, jobs, public accommodations, and should have equal access to government benefits, equal protection of the law, etcetera, and etcetera. Nearly seventy percent of people in the U.S. oppose gay marriage, almost the same proportion as are otherwise supportive of gay rights.…
I strongly believe in gay marriage, i feel like if you truly love someone whether they are a male
or female, it shouldn't matter! I think that gay marriage should be legal because it is
uncivilized. our civil rights and the constitution give us many liberties. one of our civil liberties
are the pursuit of happiness, which gay people are not able to chase. They can’t legally be
with the true person they love and it violates their freedom. In Alaska, Nevada, Montana,
Oregon, Utah, Nebraska, Missouri…
Straightforward : How to Mobilize Heterosexual Support for Gay Rights
by Ian Ayres, Jennifer Gerarda Brown
Every gay man and lesbian in America has at least two heterosexual allies willing to actively support their struggle for equality, hypothesize husband-and-wife law professors Ayres (Yale, and also a Forbes columnist) and Brown (Quinnipiac College). They argue that the hetero ally total is something like 20 million-all of whom would actively welcome "pragmatic advice" on how they can support…

“Should the Federal Government define marriage as a union between a man and a woman?”
The Federal Government should not define marriage as a union between a man and woman only. If the Federal Government amends the constitution to define marriage as only a union between a man and a woman it will be violating the Civil Rights of gay citizens. “Civil rights" are the rights of individuals to receive…
people in the world. Expertly the large population of the Gay community, in fact it affected a few of my closest friends and family members. Same states just passed a law allowing same-sex marriages.

According to the webpage, http://www.tfpstudentaction.org/ argues that people who are against Gay Marriage say 3 reasons why that it is not okay; 1 It Is Not Marriage, 2 It Violates Natural Law, and 3 It Validates and Promotes…
Marriage should be about love . Speaking as A active member of the LGBT community , nobody should be denied the opportunity to marry the one they love . Happily , same-sex marriage has just been legalized in many other states . However , there are still people who would make judgements about others ? love and their rights . Someone going against or disagreeing with me would probably say something like “Marriage should be between a man and a woman” or “It’s against the bible.” My response to the…
Pat Quinn signed legislation allowing same sex weddings, this is the 16th state that has allowed gay marriage. The whole thing was fought hard because of religious issues and it was causing problems with the churches. A former state senator was bothered by the decision and he voiced his opinion on the situation. Obviously most of the state did not have a problem with the law.

Pro & Con Arguments: "Should gay marriage be legal?"
PRO Gay Marriage
1.It is no one else's business if two men or two women want to get married. Two people of the same sex who love each other should be allowed to publicly celebrate their commitment (357 KB) and receive the same benefits of marriage as opposite sex couples. 
2.There is no such thing as traditional marriage. Given the prevalence of modern and ancient examples of family arrangements based on polygamy, communal child-rearing…
