I find it truly disheartening and downright disgusting to see individuals on here support the ban on same sex marriage. Who the hell are you to judge anyone? Just because it (for some sickening reason) offends you, means two people aren't allow to participate in marriage?
Grow the hell up already and realize that not everyone believes in your religious opinions. Also, this is the United States. Everyone deserves equal treatment whether they're gay, lesbian, bi, transgender, straight, black, hispanic, Asian, white, etc. Everyone deserves equality.
Get over it.
51-3. Want of capacity; void and voidable marriages. All marriages between any two persons nearer of kin than first cousins, or between double first cousins, or between a male person under 16 years of age and any female, or between a female person under 16 years of age and any male, or between persons either of whom has a husband or wife living at the time of such marriage, or between persons either of whom is at the time physically impotent, or between persons either of whom is at the time incapable of contracting from want of will or understanding, shall be void.
Why would gays and lesbians not be o.k. with just calling their partnership a civil union?

Another example of southern discrimination...
Yeah, and Texas wants to be its own country. Don't judge the rest of us by southern intelligence.

Marriage means the union of a man and a woman. That is what the word means.

Eh I don't think anyone expected this to not go through. I was surprised the amount that voted against. So NC you have come a long way, not far enough yet. I mean the town meetings on the issue were like mini Westboro Baptist services and went something like this.

Another sad day in the USoA. I guess the first amendment only applies to some people.
Why is it sad when the people of a STATE exercise their rights granted by the 10th amendment right?? Is same-sex marriage a constitutional right??
And what the hell is the 1st amendment an issue in this case??
What did I miss??

The contract should not be restricted by gender. I believe that will be the high court decision.
