There is a saying " It doesn't matter who you love, but that you love, and It doesn't matter what you do in life, as long as your good at it" You may not agree with someone's choice but they still deserve the freedom to choose and to be happy.
I think the real question is why ANY marriage? Most people break their religious rules with every breath they take, most marriages end in divorce, most married people cheat or think about cheating which, according to the Bible, is just as bad . . . . so if you're going to ask why gay people want to get married than you should probably ask why ANYONE would want to get married. Just to fight, not have sex with each other anymore, create unwanted children, rack up amazing amounts of debt and get divorced??

Straight, married couples have their unions recognized by the government, are given certain protections...such as spousal life insurance in case one dies, and a slew of other, very important things. Gay couples want to get married, not only because they love each other, but because they, too, want to be able to protect their loved ones and their families.
Whether or not being gay is okay, is a moral question, for many.
But the issue of whether or not two consenting, responsible adults should be allowed to legally marry, have a family, and have in place all of the legal rights to protection and security, is not one of morality, but an ethical question.
I am fully persuaded that it is very unethical to prohibit an honest, tax-paying citizen the same rights I enjoy and expect.
