The other side of things
Even though I am a supporter of gay marriage, I can see why people aren't for it too.
How would they live differently than traditional marriages?
A survey conducted by the NYTimes reported that gay marriages aren't as different as you may think. It was reported that people in gay marriages tend to be happier than those of heterosexual marriages. There also seemed to be less conflict between the couple, (Slick, 2014). A man says, "We're the couple next door, we have a dog and a cat. I drive a Volvo. I'm boring." This leads me to beilieve the similarities in gay marriages far outweigh the differences.
Why are people for it? Why are people against it?
It says the people for think it is discrimination, they deserve the the same benefits, marriage is known as a right for everybody, and gay marriages are correlated with lower divorce rates.
Though those are all good reasons people are for marriage equality, there are also good reasons people are against it. They say marriage for procreation, it is traditionally described as being between a man and woman, some religions say it is wrong, marriage is not known as a right, but a priviledge, and they say their money shouldn't be spent on something they don't believe in, ("Same Sex-Marriage").
As you can see there are good reasons both side support or oppose it, what do you support?
