I don't believe a child show grow up in an enviroment like that thinking that it's right for him to have two dads. I don't care what kind of child they bring up, no one should have to be forced to go through something like that. I would flip if I didn't have a mom.
But if they weren't adopted they wouldn't have either a dad or a mum, and surely a parental figure of some sort is far better than none at all? I'd far rather a child go to a gay couple ready to raise a child then stay on their own
Four definitions of marriage are as follows:
the state of being a married couple voluntarily joined for life (or until divorce); "a long and happy marriage"; "God bless this union"
two people who are married to each other; "his second marriage was happier than the first"; "a married couple without love"
the act of marrying; the nuptial ceremony; "their marriage was conducted in the chapel"
a close and intimate union; "the marriage of music and dance"; "a marriage of ideas"
None of those seem to mention between a man or a woman. If the term 'marriage' was actually said to mean specifically between a man and a woman I see no harm in having a different name for gay couples that want a similar relationship, it's no worse then giving them the name 'gay', whilst hetrosexuals have the name 'straight', simply a way to differentiate.
However, looking up the definitions only ever says 'most commonly between a man and a woman', so the definition of marriage evidently doesn't say in concrete that it has to be between one of either gender, thus gays should be allowed the name marriage.
I also completely agree with their rights to marry, if two straight people, one dressed as Elvis and the other Marylin Monroe, can stagger into some Las Vegas marriage chapel...thing and get married drunk after knowing eachother all of a week or something, then gays who are in a loving relationship should certainly be allowed the same thing, if it's something that they want to do it's certainly not fair to stop them. Or I mean, not in a loving relationship, two drunk Elvis's should be allowed to get married after a week of knowing one another too
