Gay Marriage Amanda Tolland SOC: Introduction to ethics & Responsibility Instructor: Wolfe Brandon 01/02/2012 When two people any two people are in love, they should be able to openly express their love for each other by becoming married. However, not everyone is legally able to get married. A love shared by two people of the same sex cannot be binding because of petty laws that prohibit gay and lesbian couples to get married. It is ridiculous that two people in love cannot get married and commit to a lifetime together if they are of the same sex. Love is love many people in today's society believe gay and lesbian marriage is wrong and if you are one of them, I am here to convince you otherwise.

Some people think that homosexuality is a sin. They feel that we shouldn't go against god and break the laws to the bible. To me in that situation god wants us to live life and be happy shouldn't that be people should be able to marry who they want to marry in life. Another pro why they don't want gay marriage is it would weaken the definition and respect for the institution of marriage. (The 50 percent divorce rate has already weakened the definition of marriage. We shouldn't be taking further steps to define what marriage is. A law allowing gay marriage would increase the number of joke or non-serious marriages, such as a couple of friends who want to save on taxes.

People should be able to marry whoever they want to marry even if that means the same sex. If you love someone so much and are willing to take those vowels in gods church then you should marry anyone you want to marry. Who are we to discriminate against gay marriage many people see it as 2 people of the same sex when people should really look at it at a different point of view. If two people of the same sex love each other they should be happy and be able to live the way they want to live. In the end it makes them happy and they won't hurt anyone when they are together they are at there own peace of mind and it should be only to them. Also if people around the keep staring at them
