Not at all. Love is love, it shouldn't be against the law to marry your same gender and what not like it is in some places.

Know what people should be able to marry whether they want to win lots or not the government shouldn't choose whether or not a person could get married a lot of kids agree with that

I don't think it should. It's nothing to do with my religion (closest to Christianity but not totally sure), it's just...why should it get to have a say in my relationship?

On the religion side of things, a marraige should be between God and the people who want to get married.

It was a metaphore, Also, it's the same exact meaning. I'm sorry that you don't see how the question could be viewed as rediculous And I'm sorry we aren't seeing eye to eye on it?

Parents' opinions have nothing to do with the question though. I'm asking whether the government should be able to tell you if you can marry someone or not. For example, if I decided to marry someone, should the government have any say in whether or not we marry? That's what I'm asking. I'm not talking about freedom, or anything else really.

Well, depending on where you live, I live in the United States, the government is based off of freedom of speech and such and therefore is going against your rights. Secondly, would you want your parents picking out an old man or woman as your future spouse? Would you want your parents telling you you can't date who you want to date? Also, would you rather marry See More▼
