I've studied gay marriage and a lot of ppl have said some very interesting subjects and key points about gay marriage. I for one think that Gay Marriage and the people in it should have the same equal rights as us. I mean all the arguments I've seen that would TRY to persuade the government to change the government are either false or very much invalid. So go on try me and see if there is ANY reason y gays should not have equal rights!

The deiffinition is as follows for marriage:
Definition
marriage   Show phonetics
noun [C or U]
a legally accepted relationship between a woman and a man in which they live as husband and wife.
Gay marriage actually can't exist because it is "a legally accepted relationship between a 'woman and a man' in which they live as husband and wife"  So if you invent a new word less people would argue about this.  However the principle is the same.  I would like to hear this study of yours on the effects of gay 'marriage', because I heard on the radio last night that the one that will be the final outcome isn't done yet.  So Where could I find the effects of gay marriage.

The whole point is that the law can change that definition of marriage - that's what the push for 'gay marriage' is all about. There is no fundamental definition of marriage - the law defines it for society, and can thus change it to suit society's changing values and attitudes.

I actually wrote a thesis on gay marriage in which I presented both sides. From that I myself decided I was pro gay marriage. I was unable to find something that concretely proved the anti gay marriage stance. Most anti gay marriage activist use religion as there basis. In America we do not cater to one religion and though some Christians believe that they are the only religion in America it is simply not true. There ARE some sects of Buddhist who marry gays but can not practice there religious beliefs in America because gay marriage is not legal. I also found in many places that Marriage is a "sanction between man, wife, and God" the only problem is that advocates of this theory are not pushing for a BAN on DIVORCE! Why? Because approximately 50% of Americans get a divorce. Most of those marriages are concidered sanctioned unions between them and God. Some are not because a quickey wedding in a courthouse is notconducted by a priest or minister but by a judge who is not a servant to God but to the law. So basically I have yet to hear a good reason why it should not be allowed.

  I believe one the effects of a legalized gay marriage,would include longer lasting relationships, it would then take time and money to divorce, not just the rental of a U-Haul. Society might just  have to take us a little more seriously.

i strongly agree that same sex marriage be legalized (and im not only talking about gay sexes) for the simple reason that all people deserves to be happy. and no one can truely know what makes one happy. it's only us, ourselves who knows what could make us happy.
so if one thinks that marrying a person with the same sex as his/hers makes him/her happy, then why do we have to oppose it?
i mean, does different religions really know what makes one happy? does the law really knows what makes one happy? bet not.
cause if so, then why do we have to argue with it now? my point is if any religion or law know what's best for the people and do it, then why do people still have something to say something against it? get the point?
