Gay marriage: is it that easy?
It’s time for me to weigh in on the gay marriage issue. All opinions are important. We all have our thoughts about the many issues we face each day. My opinion is important, and so is yours. The union between a man and woman, we call marriage has been the standard basic family unit for centuries. It is helped create stable societies, provided a safe and a secure place to produce the children which propagates those societies. The unity between a man and woman in a committed relationship, in which both are working toward common goals, is unique. It is different from all other relationships between two people. Century’s of history has shown that it provides the basic unit in society above all others. As Bruce lee once said, “The only thing that doesn’t change is change.” If you’re going to change something as basic as the institution of marriage between a man and woman, you don’t do so for light and transient causes. In my opinion, you must weigh carefully the consequences of that change. Is the change are about to make, going to produce greater value than that which you are changing from? Is the institution of marriage between a man and woman perfect? No, and in some cases it fails miserably. It is however, based on centuries of history, the best chance society has of maintaining stability, especially in times of turmoil. If you’re going to change it, what criteria do you use?
