Julie Williams Mrs. Garcia Eng. Comp. 1300.002 1 May 2013 Love Is Love No Matter The Condition Equality among men has been the greatest accomplishment our great nation has come to agree, yet, it is still holding back everyone’s right to be equal. Who is to say what is and is not right? Same-sex marriage should be legal.
Personally, I believe that homosexuals should be granted the same rights as heterosexual couples. As someone said, “marriage is a basic human right. You cannot tell people they cannot fall in love.” While he said this in reference to marriage between races, the same can be said about homosexuals. Who are we to allow some people to get married, and tell others they cannot. As a nation, we have no right to take
Healthy interaction requires freedom, responsibility and love (Cloud & Townsend). Freedom, in this case, is the understanding that each person is a free agent and they make their own choices, including choices to limit the ways other’s behaviors will affect them (Cloud & Townsend). To foster the development of boundaries, they share what is called the ten laws of boundaries. These laws are fundamental to functional boundaries, because as with any other law in nature, they are always in force in your marriage. Fail to follow the
This is coupled with a total neglect of the other end of the spectrum, the evaluation of the positives of heterosexual relationships in marriage. Meeks and Stein would have us believe that all things being equal, the dynamic of same-sex marriage has no negative influence on the family values and society. They even go so far as to assert that gays and lesbians are more likely to strengthen the traditional family values. Missing in this article are discussions and analysis of traditional family values of the heterosexual
Therefore, between two male homosexuals, there can be a father and a mother. Bennett, fails to conviceus as to why we should not allow same sex marriages, because he does not state facts but only his own views. Furthermore, marriage is a bond between two people who love and cherish each other. Not only a man and a woman have the ablility to do that, but alsosame sex unions have the ability to accomplish the standards of a successful marriage. Both man and woman have equal rights and the rights of the other party cannot be limited because it defies the “traditional” meaning of marriage.
Gays should have the right to get married Cheryl Gentleman Philosophy 103 Dr. Tara LaCasta Revell September 12, 2011 Denying gays the right to get married is discriminating against a particular part of our society. Gays are a part of our society and should be entitled to the same rights as every other citizen. People should not judge others based on their race or their sexual orientation. We live in a free nation were everyone has the same rights in freedoms. This includes the right to marry anyone they want.
Sometimes I wonder what all the hate against gay marriage is all about. Why is it such a big deal? I agree with Bishop Malone and his opinion about marriage being the foundation for a family, but I disagree with his stance that marriage should be between a man and a woman only. This comes from a very idealistic view on how life should be. Therefore, I believe that homosexual unions should be legal because they can provide the same amount of love, care, education, as well as create equally productive, creative, upright, and responsible citizens as any heterosexual
Homosexuals should get the same rights as any other United States citizen. For the United States to have a functional society, allowing all citizens, regardless of sexual preference, would be in everyone’s best interest to allow homosexuals the right to marry. Looking back at history, it was not that long ago that black and white marriages were not accepted in society. Accepting black and white marriages has made the United States a stronger society. Gay and lesbian marriages would not harm anyone; however, it would improve and enhance the lives of those couples involved.
The IRC, or the Internal Revenue Code, “exempts amounts transferred to a surviving spouse from the decedent’s taxable estate. For same-sex couples who are legally barred from marriage, this exemption is not available,” (“Federal Rights”). This means that homosexual partners cannot exempt estate taxes that heterosexual couples can which is not equal. The government should offer protection for every citizen because it promotes the marriage that America is equal for
The part of the state in a democratic libertarian culture is to secure and advance the privileges of its residents paying no respect to their sex or societal position. The International instruments, the national laws and the established laws tie the state to advance the privileges of women as natives paying no respect to the way that they are married or not. The present law neglects to take a gander at consent of a woman as a basic condition for sexual component; and taking without end the component of consent from married woman when cohabitation is improper as well as
