    We will all live. We will all die.

    We will all love. We will all have heartbreaks. We will all rejoice. We will all cry. We will all wander the Earth, our problems hidden from each other. We all have problems. In the end , we all more or less end up the same, dead. Whether you believe in afterlife, reincarnation...

    This Is Interesting...

    Yesterday I asked an EP question.  It was pretty straight forward, I asked, "What ingredients are absolutely essential for a good marriage?" I had an ulterior motive when I asked this.  You see, I support gay marriages and I am tired of hearing the same...

    Love

    Love is love... why does it matter the sex, nationality, religion or anything else. If two people are in love then let them be happy. They aren't hurting you and I rather see more love in the world instead of hate. We have way too much of that already. You don't have to like it...

    Charlie Sheen can make a **** family,Kelsey Grammer ended his 15 year marriage over the phone,Larry King is on divorce number 5,Britney Spears had a 55 hour marriage,but somehow it is with same-sex marriage that is going to "Destroy the institution of marriage". Really?

    This is something I feel extremely passionate

    about. Am I gay myself? No. Am I even bi? No. I'm a straight female with a long-term boyfriend (however I find women very sexy, and have slept with a few) who believes love doesn't discriminate and neither should we. At the end of the day who are you to dictate to some who they...

    I Support Gay Marriage....

    Love knows no gender,

    and isn't that what marriage is - a celebration of love? We should be free to love and marry who we wish. It's going to happen all over the country and sooner than most think! And of course I support it because I'm gay and my gf and I are planning to get married!

    The Wrong Argument

    I'm bisexual and I'm pride to be.

    And to be honest that is not the only reason why i support it but that is the main reason. Being gay shouldn't stop people from realizing that they ... I mean we are human beings we deserve to have rights just like the rest of yall

    The government have no right tell someone they

    cannot marry in their own country. It's disgraceful, although I'm straight, I have a gay friend, and he had a lot of trouble coming out. His exact words were 'being gay is not a choice, it's who you are'. Of course they should be allowed to marry, we're all people.

    because I am gay. Marriage should be between two people who love each other and not limited to man & woman. I'm engaged to the greatest woman in the world and we should have the right to get married. I know we can travel to another state to get married (NY, Mass or Cali) but...

    And I Did It Anyway

    Not only am I supportive of gay marriage, but I got married even though there is no law to approve it. I believe in marriage. I wish more LGBT people would just marry anyway, to show the world, we don't need a law to live out what we believe.

    and if marrying someone the same gender as them would make them happy then they should be allowed to.

    Marriage Is For Everybody.

    Instead of saying "marriage should be only between a man and a woman" which has really weak arguments supporting that view, just let everybody have a spouse. But just one spouse. The way I see it is that marriage is a legal union between two consenting adults who are otherwise...

    This Is Why Let me just start off with saying

    that it's not a choice to be gay or not. And even if it was; so what? It's a choice to be an a$$hole too, and you can still get married. To me, saying that you can choose your sexual orientation is like saying you can choose the color of your skin. It just can't happen. Anyway...

    One reason why I support gay marriage

    because nobody is going to tell me who to love, especially if my heart is telling me, "he's the one". So I'm going to listen to and follow my heart. Because that is what you're suppose to do.

    It's easy for me to support

    because I simply can't think of a reason not to support it. I like seeing gay couples happy and I really hope there are more rights given to them, especially adoption. The fsm knows that there are many children who need to be adopted into a loving home.
