30 days of truth ~ Day 18 - Your views on gay marriage.

I think marriage is marriage. That's it. I mean back in the day no one said anything about a 30 year old marrying a 13 year old. In my, not always humble, opinion at least gay people are going into marriage willingly.

I do agree, however, that whatever church they are trying to get married in has certain rules. Just like having to be a certain height to go on a ride. BUT on the other hand, isn't God supposed to love everyone?? Isn't it immature to compare being 'allowed' to marry to an amusement ride? Probably.

Who are we to say ... that THEIR marriage is a no-no, but we will celebrate with champagne when that young couple gets married. Only to find out later that he's beating her every chance he gets.

What IS wrong with gay marriage? I don't get it. Is it the word? Does someone have a copyright on the word married? Why is it such a big deal? I'm honestly just ... dumbfounded. I mean don't we have more important things to worry about? Like our environment? Shouldn't we worry about how much longer we can live on the planet before we even think of worrying who we're living with? Or who they're living with?

Our justice system needs a revamping before we start getting all worked up about gay marriage.

And our maternity care system. If you want to get all worked up about something. I vote maternity care in Canada. Definitely needs to be revamped. By the time we're done fixing our justice system and our maternity care system ... nobody will care about who's marrying who.

All I can say is that I've known a few gay couples through the years and they've had more stable relationships than half of the married couples I know. I've heard people say gay marriages go against the sanctity of marriage. What sanctity of marriage? statisticaly marriage is a joke these days. I know more divorced or seperated couples than married ones. If the gays want to give it a shot, I say let them... they might do a better job of it than us straight people :)

Im for Gay marriage! Same sex relationships could probably teach straight couples how to get along.
