Constitutional Question: Should homosexual couples be allowed to marry?[[opinion post number 2]]

Case: Henderson V. Georgia. Beth Henderson and her partner, Dawn Fite, have been together for 10 years and want the legal recognition of their union for tax purposes, health insurance purposes, and hospital visting purposes, should one of the get sick. Georgia law prohibits marriage by same sex couples. Beth sues the state, claiming this law is a violation of her constitutionally protected rights.

I ruled with Henderson.
EQUAL RIGHTS. No matter what sex, religion, gay or not, you should have the right to marry. Now if you really think about it, would u think it be fair to allow a man marry more then one woman, or a relatives get married? Its the same thing; everyone is entitled to their own privacy and as long as they are not hurting anyone else then it's ok. A lot of laws are based on religion but there are people that dont believe in god, still marry... Lets put the religion to the side for a minute and lets look at the bigger picture, everyone loves and a law cant prevent someone from moving their relationship to the next step. We aren't that powerful! I, personally, am not gay but if gay people were married, what harm would it do to me? or others?.. if your just scared your kids would think its ok, well then you know what, it is. Theres nothing wrong, there's nothing harmful being done. Everyone just needs to minds their business and let these people marry!!

Link and comment number 3

"The Violence Against Woman Act"

These links above are laws which were passed about woman who are forced to leave the country by and with their abusive husbands, it is considered kidnapping. It doesn't matter if you are married or not, it is kidnapping because the woman doesn't want to go. I believe this is a great law and we must follow. Click the links and you would see who passed the law and why it is important.
