    Love is love no matter what.

    It doesn't stop being love because of the fact that their both boys or girls, society just says it does.

    I just got married to my same sex partner this

    past year. It should be legal in the US, period. we are a lot more happier knowing we are protected and can not at least file income tax as a married person and not have to pay the single tax rate.

    I am straight - but I believe

    that gay marriages should be legalised - if you love someone and know it's meant to be and know you want to spend the rest of your life with them why shouldn't you have the opportunity to legalise and have all the same rights as a heterosexual marriage ? .. It seems to me too...

    They should have the same rights

    as everyone else. Just because they love the same sex should be irrelevant.

    Personally, I don't see a reason

    for anyone to get married. There aren't any financial benifits anymore. You should just be in a relationship without spending money on a wedding. And I'm straight. This probably seems really out of place. I may not see any reason for marriage, but you might. And some gay...

    Gay Marriage

    I am fully in support of gay and lesbian couples right to get married and to be equal to straight couples. Being in love with someone of the same gender should not be a reason to be denied a right that the majority has on offer. It seems totally unjustifiable in this day and age...

    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.
