As per this definition, people should be allowed to marry once they are in love with each other irrespective of their genders.
Reducing marriage to a union between a man and woman is thus a direct infringement into the rights of homosexuals.
First, same-sex marriage, if recognized by society, provides legal rights protection to same sex couples on such matters as taxes, finances, and health care.
If people live together in a homosexual relationship without being legally married, they do not enjoy the security to protect what they have worked for and saved together.
Additionally, gay marriages give homosexual couples the right to start families.
Just like heterosexual couples, gay and lesbian partners should be allowed to start families and have their own children.
Essentially, a family should ideally have parents and children and it is not necessary that the parents be a male and female.
Same sex partners can easily adopt and bring up children if their marriage is legalized and recognized by the society (Gerstmann, 2017).
As one would concur, even some heterosexual couples are not able to sire their own children and resort to adopting one or even more.
This is a right that should be extended to same sex couples too given that they may not be able to give birth on their own.
