California, Hawaii, New York, and the District of Columbia all have domestic partnership laws and civil partnerships meaning it is almost a marriage without the matrimony.
Civil partnerships also give couples the ability to have joint bank accounts, live in the same house, and pay bills together.
In places where gay marriages are banned, the gay couples are not able to have the same benefits as others.
When filing for health care or insurance through a job, gay couples are not able to add each other on.
Do you think the newly straight people would fight for the newly homosexual people’s rights?
America is the land of the free, but we are not free to marry whomever we would like.They are not allowed to be married or raise a family together.Imagine waking up one day to a world that was completely opposite from the world we went to sleep in, meaning gay people are now straight and all straight people are now gay.Even though gay marriage should be legalized, some people have different beliefs.In most religions including, Christianity, Islam, and Orthodox Judaism same sex preferences are a sin.In a marriage there is one thing that truly matters: love.Yes, other things are important too, but not one couple would make it to even asking someone to marry them if there was not some love.According to professorshouse.com, “In Alaska, Nevada, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Nebraska, Missouri, Michigan, North Dakota, Ohio, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Kansas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Texas, and Alabama, not only is gay marriage banned, but so are civil partnerships.” Others might ask why gay marriage should be legalized, but my question is this: why should other people be able to choose who marries who?If a man and a woman get married, no one seems to care.High divorce rates weaken what a marriage is defined as.Why are we not able to rewrite what a marriage stands for and make it include a homosexual marriage?
