Between 2000 and 2005, the number of same-sex couples in the United States increased by more than 20 percent, according to the Williams Institute, a think tank concerned with laws and public policy related to sexual orientation.

Marriage is a religious covenant between a man and a woman blessed by a religious faith. There is no form of religious faith that sanctions marriage by definition in any other form. Its that simple Gay Marriage is therefore impossible.

A civil union on the other hand is a form on contractual agreement between two people. That's the best you can do there. To call it marriage is to pervert the term. Why not then let me marry my sister or a father his daughter, or multiple wives?

Sorry marriage exists in only one form...the joining of a man and a woman.

soo what you saying is that two persons that are in love whit one and other, cant get married..'cause someone said it was "wrong"?

And same-sew marriage isn't the same thing as brother-sister marriage or father-daughter/Mother-son marriage...

If two people wish to form a civil union and your country permits it, that up to your culture. I didn't write the definition of marriage...a higher power did.

You can't even spell or use the correct noun - verb conjugation. The sentence above in its proper form should be:

So, what you are saying is that two people who are in love with one another can't get married just because someone said it was wrong?

If you are still in school, please try to bring your English grade up to at least a B and if you're no longer in school, well you are just another example of our tax dollars educating the next generation of ditch diggers and prostitutes.

It still takes a man and a woman to procreate; just as it has from the beginning of time. Even your pathetic example of the human race was created the exact same way.

I'll bet you voted for Obama too!

When you get to this point you've already lost. If you had a real argument against marriage equality you would have made it, but you didn't because you don't.

Sad, for you.

Totally irrelevant, since no couple anywhere since America's birth has required children to have a valid and legally binding marriage license. It's a blatant double-standard since this procreation argument doesn't apply to anyone except LGBT people, and that's unconstitutional.

whether people agree with same sex marriage or not it still should be legal

i dont care what some BS book says

not allowing is just being something called "selfish" keeping marriage only to males n females

marriage is a special thing linking one person to another which should be allowed for ALL couples
