In all honesty, marriage is a religious way of expressing the union of a man and woman. This union has always been with a male and a female, as was stipulated in the religious texts in question. Two dudes can't make a baby, nor can two chicks. It's just "science" lol.
If they want to be together, that's fine, but they have to understand that as marriage and it's laws are based on religion and the fact that it is only between male and female, they cannot be "married" as such, merely "together".
Doesn't mean they can't live happily together! just means that if they want to be married, it will be outside the concept that marriage was originally created in. HArsh realities im afraid.
Who says that they need to be married to be happy anways? surely a state of mind akin to being "partners" would suffice, as it does for many people across the globe.

I am not religious and i don't think gay people are vile creatures lol but i do think its not right. Maybe i'm wrong in thinking that, i don't know. I think we should base our beliefs more in what we need rather than what we want. Maybe i'm wrong in all of this and i just don't understand. One things for certain, gays are not vile creatures. Not all of them anyways, just like all heteros are not good or bad either. Getting married, i think gay or straight, if you love each other marriage shouldn't be an issue. I don't believe in the gay way lol but c'mon, they are not vile creatures unless they intend harm on you. That should be obvious. Who's right or wrong? I think we should all respect each others views and be able to talk about it like i am trying to do.
