    Opinions?

    What is your opinion of marriage in general?

      I believe that marriage is a beautiful way to seal two people's love. The sanctity of marriage has been ruined recently by kids who believe they love each other, only to be divorced in a year. For this I believe marriage can either be very happy and joyous or a fake and lame experience.

        If you are against gay sex you should be for gay marriage because as any guy that is married can tell you nothing kills your sex life like getting married does.

            Marriage in general? This requires commitment and hardwork aside from mutual love, trust and respect. On gay marriages? Just the same as marriage in general but it requires a lot more of understanding and respect from the people outside the relationship.

              I have nothing against same-sex couples but I don’t think it is right to allow them to get married. The institution of marriage has traditionally been defined as between a man and a woman and they cannot produce children together which is the main purpose of getting married.

                Not to insult, but if marriage was just for the making of children, then how do you justify couples without children? Also, the amount of children in foster homes is excessive. To add, traditional marriage used to be one white man and one white woman.

                  I have no issues with gay couples I really just don't think it's right for them to get married and I have a lot of gay friends who are not in favor of it also.

                    What gay person would not want to be happily joined with their lover? It seems a bit confusing as to me how you would be okay with same-sex couples, but are not okay with them getting married.

                      This question made me think a lot about marriage and I could not come up with a clear answer!

                      But here are some good questions to ask yourself and dig into:

                      Who or what has the authority to determine the rules of marriage?
                      What impact does the marriage of two other people have upon myself, an outsider to that marriage?
                      What is family and what is the relationship between marriage, family and society?
                      What is my own personal, gut feeling toward the institute of marriage and what facts and fictions inform these feelings?
                      What are the rules of marriage in other, diverse cultures? What are the differences and what are the commonalities?

                      Hope that helps!

                        You bring up many good points, and I thank you for those. The main argument most people use you sort of mentioned, but overall missed, was religion coming into play. You cannot call someone's religion fake or real, so instead I ask them where in the bible, as the main religions that condemn same sex couples related to Catholicism, does God state that being gay is wrong? Is it the same chapter when God condemns polyester. Or where Jesus says it, which is most likely a wrong translation of the Hebrew it was originally written in as it uses the same text to condemn pedophilia?

                          its in the bible in the book of leviticus chapter 28, a man shall not lay with another man. says nothing about female gays though.
                          That being said, I am a supporter of gay marriage. One hundred percent.
                          If two people love each other and aren't hurting anybody, then what right has any religious or political authorities to say they can't commit to each other?
                          Always perplexed me as to why this is even an issue...

                            and no it doesn't comdemn pedophilia in the bible... actually sadly kinda promotes it... Like when angels visited Sodom the sodomites gathered hoping to rape the Angels and Lot gave his prepubescent daughters to the mob to rape... Then not even a few months later Lot impregnated them himself...
                            Sadly, thats just a single example...

                              I think that we need to distinguish between marriage that is validated and authorized by the state and marriage that is validated and authorized by a religion. There exist today both religious groups that allow same-sex marriage and those that do not. The state has absolutely no authority to infringe upon those religions. I believe that this would all be a lot simpler if the state did not recognize marriage at all and left the issue to religions. So if your religion does not allow same sex marriage, then you can just join one that does. Problem solved! Lol.
