Gay Marriage-Should it be Legal or not?

I really hate people who aren't gay and say "no gay marriages allowed". Should the "Pursuit of happiness" that was put into the constitution not be followed as a law? Heck! If we don't follow that one, which ones should we follow? Some people would argue with me the fact that if someone's pursuit of happiness affects others, then it shouldn't be allowed. I agree, but since being gay does not affect you if you are not gay, that argument is useless. It really is pathetic how people get so upset about other people not believing in what they believe, they downcast them. Not out of logic or reason, but fear and stupidity. I would love someone to argue with me, to see their point of view on this.

Then you have it fertilized and set into a surrogate mother.


Quite an interesting development! I don't know how to phrase this correctly though...The whole thing about birth mothers. Is this something generally accepted? Is there documentation and/or paperwork involved, or does it just need consent of the patron?

Unbelievably, I somewhat agree with you.

I did bring it up to spark a little more debate in the topic.

I read recently they were discovering some health problems with the original 'test tube babies.' I'm afraid we wouldn't see the implications until it too late.

Personally, if my partner and I were ever going to have children it would be done as close typical reproduction as possible.

Freak, surrogacy is more popular than you may think. I remember discussing it a lot in a Bio-Medical Ethics course I took a million years ago.

There are a lot of legal documents involved and there are still loop-holes and problems with surrogacy. Cases where the surrogate mother takes it to court to try to keep the child. People will pay Hundreds of thousands of dollars to a surrogate.

Just on the same thought, women can sell their eggs for a sizable pay check! Something like $2000 each time they do it. Which is obviously once a month.

My argument is if marriage is between two people who love eachother homosexuals can't marry because being gay is not about love it's about lust.The average gay person has hundreds of relationships. They dont love eachother they just want to have sex with eachother.But of course marriage isn't about love itself it's a man and a woman who love eachother so homosexuals don't fit eather catagory'

[quote=A Random Dictionary]the legal or religious ceremony that formalizes the decision of two people to live as a married couple, including the accompanying social festivities[/quote]

As you can see, NO, it does not matter whether it is a man or a woman or with both of one gender to be called a marriage.

And yes, homosexuals are capable of loving. They are in fact human after all.

Personally, I really do not have a problem with it. I view it as a way of life and my only concerns are: As long as they don't try to do anything to me than I don't care.

If that's there way of life than so be it. You guys can't just curse their way of life because some of them have multiple partners and all, because so do heterosexual people as well.
