Gay marriage is a huge issue in the United States, some states have allowed it after taking to time to really see that all people deserve to have their own rights, but my state, Indiana, still will not allow gays to marry. They say that it is not the right way to live your life. The real question is what is the “right” way to live life? We all are different in our own ways, whether it may be color, religion, or simple things like our hobbies. That is what makes us such great country. We have our freedom to express who we are, but the gays do not because the older generations do not approve?
There are so many things that are good about gay marriage. When gay marriage is allowed it is giving everyone their right to be married. This is important because we should all be able to get married when we see fit in our lives, no matter who we want our spouse to be. I think that everyone deserves the right to be married, and I do not think that the government should be able to dictate who we marry. You also have to think about the fact that being gay is not always a choice. There have been several studies that have shown that someone being gay is the way that they are born, not what they choose. This being said, a great example of this would be a person that has mental retardation, they are still allowed to get married when they want to in their lives, so why not gay people. It is all the same, they are born this way; it is not a choice that they are able to make. I think that is a great way to show that our country really is diverse, that we see all people for people and not what their religion is, or who they love.
Now I do think that there are some drawbacks to gay marriage. I think that gay marriage, or just two gays in a relationship can be difficult for children to understand. They think about, I have two mommies or two daddies’ are together. This can be hard on them and their understanding of life. It can confuse them and make them think that being straight is wrong. It can also affect other children when they see two gay people together because they do not understand why they are like that but their own parents are not. This is just a very confusing concept for children to understand. It can make it hard on children to grow up in a family were one of the parents are gay, so they want to know why they have two mommies that are together and no daddy or the other way around.
Some generations do not think that it is right because they have a strong belief that marriage is only for a man and a woman. There are several people in the world that believe that gay marriage is wrong, just because that is what they have been told and not their own personal opinion, for example it is written in the Bible that marriage is for a...
