However, those of us who are single and forever alone are still being discriminated against.

Luls. I agree with you though. I wouldn't argue against benefits for people with kids, single, homosexual, or heterosexual, but providing benefits to two people simply because they're together? That's dumb.

I don't think the government should be involved in marriage AT ALL

I don't think the government should be involved in a lot of things, marriage included

I think its a tax break or something?

If I wanted to marry my dog, I'm sure they'd allow it, and allow marriage benefits.

Your dog can't give informed consent like a human.

They want to degrade mankind.

Who the heck wants to marry someone of their same gender?!

People attracted to the same sex obviously.

So many people fall into it just because they want special treatment.

It's not special treatment, it's equal treatment. The treatment to marry the person they love and who loves them in return. The treatment to not have to fear prosecution for being who they are.

Its fantastic news.  Almost good enough to make you forget that the day before, the supreme court struck down the voting rights act.

sensible news from the usa. =0 thats been a while.. good to see it's still a possibility. 

I'm glad gay couples are obtaining the same rights as straight couples - because equality is good and all. However, those of us who are single and forever alone are still being discriminated against.

ive been thinking the same thing for a long while.
the only reason i got married was for those benefits. at 1st we didn't want to.

#GoSnowden

i heard from a reliable source that when they get him. allot more files will be leaked by his 9 still unknown companions.
i hope we wont see them and that snowden will be free to show the usa's real face for a longer time.
the best thing about him is that he wont leak private information of people. only how they have gotten this information.

I'm happy to see this law is repealed. I'm sad that there is still a social stigma.

on a semi-related matter, I live next to two different homosexual couples in texas. they are nice people, and the children of both couples are just as messed up as children of any straight couple ('bout the normal level). they are nice neighbors, and I loved spending time with them.

the people who are still opposed to gay marriage (radical fundamentalist christians) should watch these 2 videos(some offensive language):

video 1

and 2

This is wrong; this won't happen.

I wonder how many people made that same statement concerning Homosexuals...

It's not special treatment, it's equal treatment. The treatment to marry the person they love and who loves them in return.

I'm all for getting rid of discrimination, but... Am I alone in this thinking, or is a man marrying a man just kind of weird? I mean, really really think about it... It's just weird, unnatural.

Marriage itself is unnatural, a manmade ritual done for cultural and legal purposes.

I don't mind homosexuals marrying, but yeah. Its kinda weird, I don't care who you are we've all had that thought run though our mind. Society's labeled it that way

Not really, if that's what you call unnatural we could make a long list
