10 REASONS WHY GAY MARRIAGE SHOULD BE LEGALIZED
Gay marriage is prohibited in all religions. But there are some arguments which gays often put to prove gay marriage right. This is not my view I am going to tell you the arguments of gays who are in the view that the gay marriage should be legalized in the world. Hendrik Hertzberg says that marriage should be between a spouse and spouse not a gender and a gender. Here, I have prepared a list of 10 reasons why gay marriage should be legalized.
To DECREASE THE DIVORCE RATE
In USA, more than 50% of married people get divorced. USA has one of the highest divorce rates as compared to other countries. Gays say that if they are allowed to get married divorce will decrease and marriage rate will increase in USA. They argue that fewer couples will get divorced due to incompatibility or infertility.
IT HAS NO EFFECT ON THE HETEROSEXUAL COMMUNITY
It is also said that gay marriage will have no adverse impact whatsoever on heterosexual communities. It is another argument to legalize gay marriage. LGBT community will be granted a right in this way that has been immorally denied to them.
A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CHURCH AND STATE
Religious interpretation makes gay marriage illegal. According to religious interpretation homosexuality is a great sin. Gays say that such type of religious perspective should have no place in federal and legal matters in USA. U.S. is a secular society that maintains secular views. Therefore churches and other religious extremist are not supposed to say that marriage is the only union between woman and man because this view keeps so many gay couple unmarried. If this marriage is legalized, it will have no effect on religious views and religion.
THIS MARRIAGE IS AN ISSUE OF EQUAL RIGHTS
It is amazing that in the 50s interracial marriage was illegal but these days modern community does not think it illegal. It was an unjust law that denied equal rights to couples who loved each other. In this regard, if we observe it deeply, gay marriage issue is no different. If one denies marriage of two individuals who love each other is to deny them a fundamental freedom.
GAY MARRIAGE IS AN UNAVOIDABLE REALITY
Thousands of gay couples have already gotten married in New York. It is expected that Manhattan will earn $9 million revenue during the first year that marriage was legalized. Although Gay marriage is not legal but millions of gay partners already practice monogamous. Gay marriages are not legally protected in U.S. Gays are already practicing marriage in home, so what is wrong with granting this community the rights they deserve.
UNIONS ARE NOT THE SAME
In U.S gays are legally allowed to enter into civil union partnership. Actually it is not nearly the same thing as marriage. The marriage right grants several rights to married couples while the gays in civil union cannot take benefit from such rights. It is a false behavior to believe that this marriage is not necessary because they already have civil unions and why do they want more? All the rights including medical, social and financial that are associated with marriage are kept away from homosexual couples.
GAY MARRIAGE WILL DECREASE YOUTH SUICIDE
Why teenagers are commit suicide. There are several reasons behind this. The one of most important reasons is that teenagers are forced at their school as a result of her/his sexual orientation. If gay marriage is accepted and respected in the society it will result in diminish in youth suicide. We should explain to younger generation that being different is not a social disability still they are part and parcel of this society.
SOCIAL & MEDICAL RIGHTS
You will not believe that in this modern era sexuality based discrimination still exists in U.S. Gay partners cannot legally allowed to receive medical information about their condition without a blood relative present. If this marriage is legalized, it will allow gay couples hospital visitation rights and respect the validity of their marriage.
IT IS NECESSARY TO RESPECT GAYS
If gay marriage is legalized it will help establish a social standard that includes and respects homosexual lifestyles. LGBT community will enjoy less difference from heterosexual lifestyle.
Ceremony of a Gay Marriage
TO DIMINISH POPULATION
More and more children will be adopted by gay couples. If gay marriages are legalized, population will be controlled easily. Therefore gay couples insist to legalize gay marriages in order to play a vital role in adapting homeless and orphan children and to control population growth which is a threat for the world in some extent.
