Gay Marriage Rights

Gay marriage should be legal, marrying the one you love is your own choice and people should have the freedom to marry who they love. Same-sex marriage is a problem all over the world, but the Future President should decide whether the United States should be a country of freedom or a country of restrictions.

Dear Future President,

          In many parts of the world, same-sex marriage is looked down upon. Many states in the United States still don’t agree to same-sex marriage. People should marry who they love and the public should respect it. People who are homosexual should have the right to marry who they love and should be treated equally. In June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court has legalized gay marriage, though a lot of people still disagree on the idea of marrying the same sex as yourself. In November 2008, California had passed Proposition 8 that removed the right to marry from same-sex couples. Even though the Supreme Court had legalized gay marriage, California still didn’t like the proposition so they went to lengths to remove the right that couples had.

         “Same-sex marriage is currently one of the most divisive political issues in our nation” as stated in Dissent Some people wouldn’t deny that gays or lesbians are capable of friendship, intimacy, meet and happy conversation, and mutual responsibility. It’s proven that in Australia by university Melbourne researchers surveyed 315 same sex parents and 500 kids. It showed that not having a stereotypical family makes it more harmonious. Gay parents usually tend to be more motivated, more committed than stereotypical, woman and man, parents on average, because they chose to be parents.  

           There are many pros to legalizing gay marriage and it is up to the president to decide if gay marriage is legal or not. Many pros of gay marriage is that more children will be adopted into homes and the children will most likely have happy healthy life. It also promotes freedom, United States is the freedom country and people should have their freedom of marrying who they love. People also demand in equality, allowing gay marriage is a big step into equality. Since some countries and states don’t protect people in a gay relationship, this is a chance for gay couples to feel like their protected where they live. We don’t want to be a country where gay marriage isn’t allowed. There are some countries that do not allow gay marriage, the punishments when the gay couples are caught are sometimes death. The people in the United States do not want to live in a country that is in the category of countries that do not allow gay marriage, and punish people by death. A few countries that disapprove of gay marriage are India, Singapore, Russia, Jamaica, Japan and Nigeria.                                                                                                                                                                                                                          Law and restrictions should not affect how someone loves a person. They should have the absolute right to marry whoever they love and would wish to spend the rest of there lives together.  The United States should be known as the "country of freedom", not the "country of restrictions".
