  1. Wonderful news, congratulations to all! Great Britain has evolved even further as a country leading the world forward in fairness and equality.

  2. I think it is a good idea to allow same sex marriages. I think that people should be allowed same sex marriages because its doesn’t matter who you marry as long as you love them.

  3. I think that same sex marriages is good idea as people should be allowed to do what they want and they can’t force themselves to marry someone they don’t love.

  4. I understand the world’s viewpoint that we should get to do whatever we want and be supported for those desires and choices. However, there is a reason why gay marriage hasn’t been deemed a civil right already. In no way trying to offend gays, calling something marriage does not make it marriage. Marriage has always been a covenant between a man and a woman which is by its nature ordered toward the procreation and education of children and the unity and wellbeing of the spouses. Same sex marriage does not create a family but a naturally sterile union. It is also turning a moral wrong in to a civil right.

    The promoters of same-sex “marriage” propose something entirely different. They propose the union between two men or two women. This denies the self-evident biological, physiological, and psychological differences between men and women which find their complementarity in marriage.

    (i may come across as hateful, but I’m simply expressing my opinion as to why I think gay marriage is wrong…)

    • You absolutely have the right to express your opinion; and your arguments are very well explained and formulated. Your ideas only clash with people who don’t see homosexuality as a moral wrong as they see gay relationships as being about love and affection. It is always more challenging to voice an opinion against the tide of comments, so it is good to see someone brave enough to say what they think. Do you think young gay people would like the chance to experience the commitment of marriage like straight people?
