Gay Marriage; The Rights They Should Have But Not Want

As an adult of today’s culture I must have an open mind of the new tends that are happening in our world today and one of them being gay marriage.  Growing up in South Jersey and being so close to Philadelphia I often took day trips into the city and spent time there, where they have a huge gay population as well. Walking through the gay community wasn’t anything different then walking down any other street minus seeing a few rainbow colored flags around. In my eyes they are not viewed as anything different.
When it comes to the gay marriage rules I think they should be able to get married, they are just trying to have the same rights as others in our world. For the homosexuals being able to get married would give them the feeling of being the same and not looked at differently. I know that marriage means a lot to them and everything but honestly I’m not sure why. When you look at our society of marriage in the United States its not exactly perfect. Almost fifty percent of couples get divorced and it leads to ending relationships more then anything. We put such a great emphasis on getting married that people think if you don’t get married you aren’t living your life correctly.  I believe that the gay marriage debate should be occurring and they need to right for their rights and have the same opportunities as anyone else.
When it comes to my opinion on the debate of gay marriage being legal I think it is an easy answer, it should be allowed. There is no reason why people have the authority to decide who can and cannot get married because they don’t agree with it. Couples getting married never affects anyone and does no harm so why shouldn’t they get the same rights and be able to tie knot as well. Homosexuals should want to get married because it ties the knots but not when the divorce rate is so high and watching how the couples who are married act once married to one another.
