kids getting married too early in life is the biggest reason.You shouldn't get married until you are older than 30..kids either none until the age of 30..it would cut down on divorce and welfare people..People having kids and going on welfare just teaches the kids to do the very same thing..grow up and contribute to the country first..

So, if I'm 30 I can marry my girlfriend in your state?

I'll be 30 in 11 years.

The gay perverts of NAMBLA want same sex marriages so they can "adopt" little boys for their perversions. Protect children by voting against NAMBLA gay marriages.

There's no law against any same sex couple going to a jurisdiction that allows same sex marriage for their wedding. No law stops any religious group's marriage ceremony. There is no same sex marriage ban.

We just want to stop our government from redefining marriage for everyone.

Hey ignorant arse. those marriags are NOT reconized any where else, thats wherein the inequality lies, Straaght people can get married anywehre and every state and locality reconizes it. This falls under equal protection of the law, if everyone reconizes some marriages but not others that is NOT equal. How would you like it if say half the states decided not to reconize marriages between people with brown hair or blacks and whites or christians. It all falls under equal protection of the law so by states banning ssm and not reconizing it, they are actualy breaking federal law.

The Defense Of Marriage Act allows states to decide for themselves. Vice President Biden voted to enact the DOMA into law.

Straights can have a polygamous marriage in Oman, and return to the USA without fear of prosecution, just like gays can go to New York for their wedding. The state has the right to establish marriage standards. Same sex marriage isn't recognized in Colorado, only marriage as one man and one woman is recognized here.
Colorado Amendment 43, the Definition of Marriage Act, was on the November 7, 2006 ballot in Colorado as a initiated constitutional amendment, where it was approved.

The "Definition of Marriage Act" amended the Colorado Constitution by adding a new section, Section 31, to Article II. Section 31 says, "Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state."

Every adult person should have the right to marry any another consenting adult they wish, regardless of age, race, gender, or sexual orientation.

If,[e]very adult person should have the right to marry any another consenting adult they wish, regardless of age, race, gender, or sexual orientation", then close family members could marry and you could marry someone who's already married.

Stuff that! There is no orientation test for a marriage license; gay's have always married under the same laws as everyone else. I cite Meredith Baxter and Oscar Wilde as examples.

Keep marriage one man and one woman because gender matters. Stop gender segregated marriage, keep gender diverse marriage. Same sex marriage isn't equal rights, it's a special right to redefine marriage law for everyone. Down with segregation.

Most of the opposition that I've seen seems to be based on people's religious or spiritual beliefs. I necessarily support gay marriage, but I don't think that our government's policies should ever be based on religious view, so if the government recognizes any two adults being married they should not take in to account gender, race, creed, etc. Churches however should not have to preform or recognize any marriage they don't want to. That's one of the great things about our country, no group's religious beliefs no matter how large or wide spread should be imposed upon anyone by law.
It's silly to say that our government policies should never be based on religious views....if you're for homosexuality do you really think there's no 'religion' behind that? Of course there is, the synagogue of Satan is what it's called. Let's face it, there's God (calling homosexual behavior an abomination/sin and there's Satan saying just the opposite. So...please don't work to take away the vote of God lovers just because you are a god lover, okay?

Right on! We know what happens to children in the 'care' of homosexuals, like in the Boy Scouts. Homosexuals are perverted through and through and no child is safe around them!

We have a right to assert our religious values in law. We oppose incest and polygamy because of religious values. The same hold for protecting marriage as one man and one woman.

Romney has pledged to protect marriage, Obama's same sex marriage views are evolving; this is where they differ.

I would be most surprised to see Romney ever support two sexually perverted men getting 'married'. That is laughable! LOL

Then I can make laws based on MY religious views, which say gay marriage is ok and hurting anyone else by judging them and not allowing them rights is wrong, therefore my religious laws say you are to be locked up for life for breaking them.

You can make laws based on your religious views, our laws are written by democratically elected representatives. When Obama and Biden ran in 2008, they defended one man/one woman marriage based on their faith:

http://www.clipsandcomment.com/2008/08/17/ful...
WARREN: Thereís a lot more Iíd like to ask on that. We have 15 other questions here. Define marriage.
OBAMA: I believe that marriage is the union between a man and a woman. Now, for me as a Christian ó for me ó for me as a Christian, it is also a sacred union. Godís in the mix. But Ė
WARREN: Would you support a Constitutional Amendment with that definition?
OBAMA: No, I would not.
WARREN: Why not?
OBAMA: Because historically ó because historically, we have not defined marriage in our constitution. Itís been a matter of state law. That has been our tradition. I mean, letís break it down. The reason that people think there needs to be a constitutional amendment, some people believe, is because of the concern that ó about same-sex marriage. I am not somebody who promotes same-sex marriage, but I do believe in civil unions. I do believe that we should not ó that for gay partners to want to visit each other in the hospital for the state to say, you know what, thatís all right, I donít think in any way inhibits my core beliefs about what marriage are. I think my faith is strong enough and my marriage is strong enough that I can afford those civil rights to others, even if I have a different perspective or different view.

http://edition.cnn.com/2008/POLITICS/10/02/de...
IFILL: Let's try to avoid nuance, Senator. Do you support gay marriage?

BIDEN: No. Barack Obama nor I support redefining from a civil side what constitutes marriage. We do not support that. That is basically the decision to be able to be able to be left to faiths and people who practice their faiths the determination what you call it.

The bottom line though is, and I'm glad to hear the governor, I take her at her word, obviously, that she think there should be no civil rights distinction, none whatsoever, between a committed gay couple and a committed heterosexual couple. If that's the case, we really don't have a difference.

IFILL: Is that what your said?

PALIN: Your question to him was whether he supported gay marriage and my answer is the same as his and it is that I do not.

IFILL: Wonderful. You agree. On that note, let's move to foreign policy.
Support sending a federal marriage amendment defining marriage as the union of one man and one woman to the states for ratification.

Nominate to the U.S. Supreme Court and federal bench judges who are committed to restraint and to applying the original meaning of the Constitution, appoint an attorney general similarly committed, and thus reject the idea our Founding Fathers inserted a right to gay marriage into our Constitution

Defend the federal Defense of Marriage Act vigorously in court.

Establish a presidential commission on religious liberty to investigate and document reports of Americans who have been harassed or threatened for exercising key civil rights to organize, to speak, to donate or to vote for marriage and to propose new protections, if needed.

Advance legislation to return to the people of the District of Columbia their right to vote on marriage.

If you think all our congressmen DO NOT make laws based on their religious views you are naive indeed. Everyone bases their opinions and votes on their own values and those come from either the God of the Bible or the god of this world (Satan). That's why there are always 2 sides opposing each other....one good and one evil.

Yes, you may vote too, even though what you want is the right to call your sex perversion a 'right'. But everyone gets a vote, even evil ones.
