Gay marriage should be legal

Extracts from this document...


Gay marriage should be legal Should gay marriage be legalised? Yes, absolutely. Marriage should be about love, support, nurtured relationship, and such relationship does not depend on gender. Gay marriage will only strengthen and enrich the social concept of marriage. Gay marriage and straight marriage are the same. There are love, affection and devotion. Both of them should be legal. The only problem is always from the church, but still I think everyone should have his/her right to choose the nature of marriage. The church has its laws that homosexuals can't get married. But there is always a separation between church and the country. The church cannot control what the country does, and the country should not act on Christian/Catholic views. ...read more.

Here, besides legalizing the gay marriage, there is a need to impose law to restrict the people from getting gay married too easily. And the most important of all, there is a need to educate people to correct sense of facing marriage, no matter this is a normal one or a gay one. Again, marriage is something about love and support. If love is fully applied on the situations stated in the five reasons above, the predicted problems can surely be solved. True love is the universal solution to most of the problems in the world, including gay marriage. If gay marriage can be tolerated by the church or the country, people will gradually accept this. The legalized gay marriage is believed to enrich the country and the freedom here certainly increases the productivity and creativity of the country. ...read more.
