30 Days of Truth ~ Day 18~ Your Views on Gay Marriage

I FULLY support Gay Marriage.

I do not believe that marriage is strictly between a woman and a man. It doesn’t matter your gender, if you are in love with someone and want to spend your life with that person, I believe you should have the same rights and benefits as heterosexual couples. I believe LGBT couples have the same feelings as any other couple, I feel they should be able to be legally married, and enjoy the celebration without fear of rejection or discrimination.

I also feel LGBT couples are entitled to any insurance benefits their spouse may be able to provide through their place of employment, and I also support the choice to have children. Whether by artificial insemination, adoption, surrogacy or any other legal means they choose.

I also support LGBT couples who face the challenge of legalities concerning medical decisions they may be required to make for their partner. How dare the government or any institution decide to prohibit a partner from either being with someone who is ill and possibly dying or from making the choices that had previously been discussed by the one who may be too ill to make those decisions at the time choices were needed. No one knows you better than the one you have loved and lived with for the majority of your life. No one else is qualified to make choices...

Marriage is not just for male/female couples any longer.

  1. What a lovely truth. New York JUST approved gay marriage. So many of my friends are getting handfasted; it will be a nice summer/winter for love.
