    I do believe that gay marriage should become

    legal. Everyone has the right to love who they love. This means everyone should have the right to marry to who they love, no matter what their gender or lifestyle may be like!

    I believe gay marriage should be legal

    and luckily the two places I am from it is legal. While the third place (where I am a permanent citizen of) it is also legal, now we just need to fight the resistance and make most of the world legal. But for those who want to get married you could have a destination wedding...

    Your penis being injected into your boyfriend

    Yes, It Should Be!

    everyone wants to be in love at some time or another. and to celebrate that love we get married and commit our lives to each other. so, why does it matter if the two getting married are female and male, male and male, or female and female? it is our lives that are being harmed in...

    I just stumbled upon a facebook page

    and saw these lovely couples. I mean, they're cute!!! If these people love each other, why not give them the right to get married?

    I believe people should be able to marry

    whoever and/or whatever they want. Though I might be biased for gay marriage since I myself am gay :)

    Not being gay, this was an issue

    that I wasn't very interested in, either way, for a long time. However, as I have thought more about it, it seems to me that the real issue isn't same sex marriage. It seems to me that the real issue is whether the law should embody a particular set of "moral" judgments about...

    Foolish Debate

    As a straight, christian man, I honestly have no problem with it. In what way does gay marriage affect me? None what so ever, that's what. It just seems foolish that there's even a debate about it. People that are against homosexuals and everything that has to do with them should...

    It's Just a Question of Human Rights

    Why should the law be involved with

    who you marry? Why should anyone else be involved with who you marry except for you and the person you love? It's nobodies choice but yours! Not the laws or anybody else's!

    Love

    There is so much hate in this world that I cannot fathom why someone loving someone else in a mutual, age-appropriate relationship could be wrong? I am a Christian, and I believe God is for love. Our "hating" of someone else's love seems hypocritical to me.

    Legalize It Already

    I probably have a different take on why they should just hurry up and legalize it everywhere. My spouse and I were married last year in Iowa, I would now like to be divorced and cannot. The problem being Minnesota doesn't recognize my marriage as valid so, I can't get divorced...

    Marriage is about love!

    Not gender! You should marry who you love! Regardless of their gender it sad to see people "hate" gays and transgenders be who you wanna be! Love who you wanna love! We shouldn't be hating "hate" is such an ugly word! Much love, respect and support! ❤

    I am not gay. But i have lots of friends

    I've seen many man and women

    who can be legally together but doesn't live a happy marriage and end up divorced. However, I know a gay couple who can't be legally together (yeah because my country's law forbid it), and they have been living together for nearly 40 years, and they're still very happy

    It's not up to us to dictate who someone else can and cannot love! Just make LGBT marriage legal and MOVE ON! There are more important things to worry about! Like the debt and taxes and Female rights! Just legalize it and MOVE ON! End of story!

    I believe that sexuality is fluid.

    People should fall in love with the person and not the sex of that person. Your heart will love who it chooses. If you are consenting adults then no one has the right to tell you that your love is wrong and that you are not allowed to share that wonderful commitment of...
