Marriage refers to a mutual agreement between couples that clearly states their obligation and rights (Starngass,2012). It also states their relationship to their nuclear and extended families. Since time immemorial, a person whether male or female is expected to get into a marriage institution and establish a family at a particular stage in one life.
Same- sex marriage is whereby people of the same biological sex come together and have mutual agreement on the rights and obligations that bind them together. Some factors considered tend to disagree with gay marriages. These include: sexual satisfaction, moral value in a community and provision of a real family with offsprings(Starngass, 2012).
Emotional factor is the most important thing between two parties that are interested in making a life commitment with each other. Technological advancement has sorted the sexual aspect between people of the same sex. For example, lubricants and vibrators. The society should accept that in today's world emotional feeling can exist between people of the same sex. Essentially, rightful to be together as partners in marriage regardless of sex provided such opportunity does not impact on others in the society. Adoption has been a trend in families that need a kid, but cannot be able to have one in a normal, natural way (Starngass, 2012) Same sex partners can adopt and make a family.
Legalising same-sex marriage will ensure freedom of expression of feelings, more productivity and as it is clear cases of deceit and unfaithfulness will reduce. Illegalising same marriage also encourages the spread of diseases such as aids and other STIs due to the unfaithfulness among partners who are in a straight marriage unwillingly and end up cheating.
In conclusion, people have a right to choose their partners for relationships.Therefore, it is pertinent to give individuals freedom to decide on their marriage choices regardless of sex distinctions.
