Why do gay people need to get married?

The only reason is to that there's a legal means to share one person or the other's benefits and save money on paying for it twice. It saves on medical insurance and other sorts of things.
It's entirely comprised of a way to beat the system. One partner will benefit from the other. Very much like a husband and wife. but this is done because the wife quite often has to raise the kids and can't secure her own benefits.
By society condoning this, it opens the way for many other moral questions. Like why is the age for consent to having sex 17 and not 13? It's society that establishes that. Why is it against the law for two young boys to practice gay sex? Because the law says to. But there laws have just been challenged and lost on one front. If you're going to change one, you might as well change them all. It's only a matter of time.
Society is headed backwards - and then we wonder why kids have no role models and decent upbringing anymore?? Strict moral standards built this country but lax of these now will destroy it - bit by bit. Things will be pushed a little here and a little there to see how far society is willing to go. By lowering certain standards, society will push that too. It's like the speed limit. You raise it to 65 to satisfy the masses, and they travel at 75. No matter what, humans always push it a bit further. And every time society caves in to it, it's pushed that much more. Think about it.

Marriage gives both rights and responsibilities. It also provides more stability and safety to couples and families. There is no rational reason to deny gay people marriage, except for the fact that some folks are uncomfortable with it. When you parse any argument that I've ever seen, it amounts to either "we haven't done it that way before", or I'm not comfortable with it.". Civil unions just add another obfuscating layer, and still don't provide the same rights and responsibilities.
