Gay marriage debates have been going on for as long as I can remember, I think it's about time something is finalized. In this passage, I don't agree with the man who is doing this debate because I believe that gay marriage should in fact, be legal. There is no logical reason as why two people of the same sex can't love each other, just like two people of the opposite sex can. As far as I'm concerned, everyone should have this right. I think that people get too wrapped up into the sexual end of it and don't really take into consideration that the sexual intimacy comes from really caring and loving someone when you are talking about marrying that person. No one can help who they love and who they find attractive, so why should homosexuals be penalized or looked down upon for doing just that? There is no true definition for marriage, there are many floating around, but no true definition. I believe that until that definition comes about, no one should have a say in who someone can fall in love with and desire to spend the rest of their life with being happily married to them. It says in the passage that it's not necessary for this to happen, but if this isn't necessary, why does anyone get married then? If it's not necessary for one, why the other? I feel like there is a lot of double standards and contradicting while these debates go on. As a final opinion, it's not fair and two people of the same sex should be able to marry each other if that's what they desire.
