What are the arguments against gay marriage?

Arguments Against Gay Marriage

Though many arguments against gay marriage are based in homophobia, even people who otherwise support the rights of gays and lesbians have advanced arguments against gay marriage. One main concern is that allowing two people of the same sex to marry will devalue the concept of marriage. Those against gay marriage argue that marriage is between one man and one woman and allowing gay marriage would destroy the traditional family, which defenders of this idea value.

Others argue that marriages are for procreation. This argument is related to the idea that same-sex couples are not appropriate parents and shouldn't be allowed to assume a family structure. Those against gay marriage often bring up the above points, although their arguments are based on an idea that homosexuality is morally wrong.

i think that if you are grown enough to consider marriage than you are grown enough to marry who ever you want. why should anyone have to give you permission to do that..its like you have to get permission to be happy. whoever you choose to spend the rest of your life with should be your chose.

if it really devalues the concept of marriage and is ruinous to the family structure, then what does divorce do? don't see anyone rushing out to ban that.

What about abolishing government-sponsored unions at all? Homosexual or heterosexual unions really shouldn't be supported legally, at least not as 'marriage', since that's generally a religious institution. Economic benefits for all civil unions would be ideal.

That's pretty much all true, if you simply look at a man and a woman's body it clearly shows they are supposed to be together. And, well, Same sex couples make me want to throw!

i see absolutely nothing wrong with a same sex couple making a family. no one has the right to say that they are unfit to be parents. they should have every right everyone has.

@Young your not open minded at all same sex marriage is the same as between men and woman they love eachother and want to spend the rest of their life together, the values are there the bodies are just similar. open ur mind and heart, ur being ignorant to their feelings and arogant.

No one should be able to tell you who you can't and can marry. I thought we already passed through that? If they love each other than go ahead and marry, it doesn't harm anyone. Only they can harm themselves and make a big fuss about it. I am proud to say I SUPPORT GAY MARRIAGE !!!!!
