Legalizing the Same Sex Marriages
Around the world same sex marriages are gradually gained much importance. In recent Pew Research Poll shows that, about 57 percent of the people are against to permit lesbian and gay marriages legally and only 32 percent people are support marriages of same sex The people who are in favor of same sex marriages are between the ages of 18 to 29 are 44 in percentage, and these people called themselves “secular”.
In same-sex marriages the following points considered:
- heterosexuals have civil rights and liberties and economic benefits so LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) people are allowed to gain full civil and social equality;
- in general, LGBT should be permitted to anyone else of their choice as heterosexual have liberty to choose their life partner, this is the basic right of LGBT people;
- in addition, marriage grants positive thinking and benefits to cherished couples that are not otherwise offered;
- the countries should give permission LGBT to marry, lacking of some convincing secular reason for denying same sex marriage couples have option for marriage;
- the State’s legitimate benefit in regulating close relationships are limited primarily to promoting stable relationships, provided that for an organized progression for the suspension of such relationships when required, as well as the reasonable division of property and belongings, ensuring the arranged transfer of property and belongings among generations, and protecting the children who may be taken care of and brought up by the couple in the relationship;
- the existing practical facts specify that same-sex couples have relationships that are as capable of stability as relationships between heterosexual couples and same-sex couples are also equally capable of being fit parents. All these considerations compel the conclusion that same-sex marriage should be legally available.
Of course, in the final analysis, little headway can be expected as long as misperceptions and myths about LBGT people and same-sex marriage persist. LGBT people have the same hopes and desires and the same capabilities (and failings) as heterosexuals. Many of them want to take part in a stable, loving, committed relationship, and those who want children have proven that they are as fit parents as heterosexual couples. They are entitled to enjoy the same social and economic benefits and privileges that married couples possess. Anything less unmistakably brands them as second-class citizens.
