Same-sex marriage (also known as gay marriage) is the marriage of a same-sex couple, entered into in a civil or religious ceremony. The term marriage equality refers to a political status in which the marriages of same-sex couples and the marriages of opposite-sex couples are recognized as equal by the law.

I feel like in this century people of the same sex can marry who they want. If a woman wants to marry another woman then let her. They should have equal rights to marry anyone they want to.I am not a person who likes the same sex but I think it is not fair to others who can’t marry someone there in love with.

Same-sex marriage has been a huge topic the past couple of years, and I don't think it is going away. I know it makes many people uncomfortable, because it's not "normal" or "common". However, by law same-sex marriage should be allowed in every state. The government is taking its citizens rights away. It is not the governments job to decide who a person wants to spend the rest of their lives with. It should be legal in every state, then the churches (or any other establishment that hosts weddings) should get the choice whether they want to host same-sex marriages in their church. Many people have a problem with same-sex marriage because in the Bible marriage is defined as a union between a man and a woman. I say we should just call it a different name so that can no longer be a defense, like a gaunion or garriage or a marray, but the homosexual couples will get all the same benefits as heterosexual couples do. I'm not saying that would solve everything, but it might be a good place to start.
