Day 18 — Your views on gay marriage.
This post may not win me to many friends but then again it might. Who knows!
I believe in and support gay marriage 100%. I believe that everyone has a right to happiness and it shouldn’t matter who it’s with.
Marriage isn’t required for long, successful relationship but there are many who want it and they should be able to plan that beautiful wedding they’ve always dreamed of. They should be able to look into the eyes of the person that they love more than anything else in the world as someone announces them married and know that life is perfect at that moment.
I have long wondered why people are so vehemently against it. I just do not understand it at all and most of all I don’t understand the hate and violence against someone who wants the same simple right that many take advantage of.
Marriage isn’t about health care benefits, who gets what in a will, or makes the decisions when your significant other becomes seriously ill. What marriage is about is building a life long relationship with someone you love. Building and sharing a life with the one person who you don’t want to ever be without.
Marriage is love, patience, friendship, compromise, understanding, forgiveness, and openness.
Yes, marriages fail and it doesn’t matter if it’s a gay or heterosexual couple. But that’s life and sometimes things happen.
So, yes. I support gay marriage without a doubt.
