Whether we wish to accept it or not, in this country, marriage is often treated like a glorified business transaction. For this reason, gay marriage has received a critical eye. How productive can a gay couple be in society if they cannot produce offspring (and thereby contribute to society as a whole)? This argument has been undercut with counter arguments that by that logic, menopausal women or sterile men should not be allowed to marry. However, some still maintain that the social construct of marriage should remain male-female in order to preserve cultural traditions. Today, active steps are being made by policymakers and the public to reverse this thinking.
