There’s no such thing as gay marriage,

Now it’s just marriage.

—Love Won

Love is love and marriage should just be marriage, there shouldn’t be different types of marriages. You should be able to marry whomever you chose to marry with no law to stop you from doing it.  In America we were basically telling you, you are not allowed to be happy, until now.  “On July 25, 2014 Miami-Dade County Circuit Court Judge Sarah Zabel ruled Florida’s gay marriage ban unconstitutional and stated that the ban “serves only to hurt, to discriminate, to deprive same-sex couples and their families of equal dignity, to label and treat them as second-class citizens, and to deem them unworthy of participation in one of the fundamental institutions of our society.” There is nothing wrong with two people of the same sex getting married, it’s just like any other couple getting married. Imagine finding one person who truly makes you happy, like nothing else in the world. Imagine falling in love with this person, not seeing yourself having to live without them. One day you and this person talk about getting married, but you are not able to because in your state SAME SEX marriage is banned or prohibited. Money just doesn’t grow on trees and you all are not financially stable enough to go to another state, just to get married. Gay marriage should be legal for everyone in every state, that shouldn’t even be a question. You should be able to marry anyone without any question.

Banning or prohibiting same sex marriage is depriving people from their citizenship as an American. This is supposed to be “the home of the brave and the land of the free,” but having laws about same sex marriage is contradicting the star spangled banner and, therefore, stopping people from exercising their first amendment fully. Why should anyone be stopped from doing what makes them happy, same sex marriage doesn’t kill people like guns do ….. But people have the right to bear arms.

Moral of the story is that no one should be banned from marrying the person who they plan to spend the rest of their life with. If heterosexual people can get married then gay and lesbian people can get married too and, finally, the rest of the country now seems to agree.
