if you've every been married and it didn't work out, why bother? a well-known tv talk-show host agrees gays should all be able to get married so they can be as miserable as the rest of us...  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Allison, Cute. But true. After having been married to a lawyer, I say let us keep the law out of marriage. People stay together because of love not because of a piece of paper. As for sexual preferences, lets face it, it is a biased world. People don't want to understand what they are so afraid of. If one is lucky enough to have true love once in a live time then one is truly blessed.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Well.... June 27, 2004 10:19 PM

I think that the Stae and the Government needs to stay out of the marrying business! If two people want to be together, so be it! I personally disbelieve in marrage, with the whole "Let's wear rings" thing. That is more of a socail Ownership of another, which I totally disagree with! I own no one and I wish not to be owned. I agree with Margaret, it's just a piece of paper. Unless your with a credit agency or the IRS! For the people who want to marry, I say, go for it!  [ send green star]

To Marry or Not June 29, 2004 11:09 AM

Hey my basic point. Everyone should have the same right. Sexual preferences aside. If two gay men want to get married ands adopt a family why should they be exculded. Etc. I think love is a beautiful thing and all people should have egaul rights. If I have the right to marry a man if I choose to why shouldn't I have the same right to marry a woman if I choose to. Sure you can choose never to get married but you should still have egual choice right? Cori W  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

Cori, I agree with you completely. I believe everyone should have the same rights regardless of sexual preference. I'm sorry if I didn't stress that, I always get so angry over my own experience, I have to remember that there are some good marriages. And love is beautiful, as well as I remember. Just kidding...

I have two points to make.... 1.everyone should hae he righ to legalize their love if hey choose to do so..... whether regular,gay,bi,or3-some, 4-some, etc. Why discriminate? 2. there is maybe too much emphasis placed on legalizing marriage these days, to "be conventional", rather than just to share love.... From my own point of view,I have had a seriously bad legal marriage, several interesting but over with relationships , (all long distance and none legalised), and ended up totally devoted to my soul mate; yet as I am not 'living' with him, let alone legally recognized, people do not view our relationship as "real", if existant at all. Yet Mmy current connection is far deeper and stronger than with any former partner....and the only one that seriously stands a chance of lasting.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
 
Marriage is more than that... August 03, 2004 8:27 AM

Sure, if marriage was just about love, then it would be just a piece of paper. But it's more than that. It's about becoming a family in the eyes of the law so that you can have the same rights as other families, such as joint taxes, family health care plans, being considered "next of kin" in case of emergencies, etc. There are over 1,000 rights that married couples enjoy that non-married couples cannot have access to. If your significant other is in a car crash and you're the same gender, you may not be allowed in the hospital room much less be considered when important decisions need to be made. All these things are tied in when you consider whether someone should have the right to get married. Couples who decide not to get married may sidestep some of the conventional aspects of marriage, but it is a trade-off. Having your family considered legitimate in the eyes of society and the law has its benefits, too. I say, every couple should have the option to decide whether or not they want to get married.
