One thing is, that this "debate" is quite heated at the moment, and nobody wants to budge. It isn't anything new that a taxpayer might be attracted to the same sex, but all of the demands on the equality of rights IS now in the spotlight, more people are coming out, and the focus is directly aimed at those issues, which is causing all of the confusion.
I'm not against gay marriage..I'm not against a person marrying a dog,car,wall,or their own grandmother!!! (to each their own) But tell me, how are their constitutional freedoms being violated?? Please explain to me where in the U.S Constitution/Bill of Rights does it say that ANYBODY has the right to marry!! There's a difference between "Rights" and law.... gay people do not have their rights violated by not being able to marry...as marriage is not a right! Ps: this is the stupidest issue in America....who cares if you are "married"...all "marriage" is...is a piece of paper!! this country cares more about gays and guns and not enough about poverty and mental health!!!!!! another thing...gay people should be happy that they are allowed "out of the closet".....50 years ago gay people had to hide who they really were due to extreme ridicule and persecution!! I have gay friends and family as well, so I'm not being a hater...just a realist!!

Legally - they do. Any two individuals can form a "legal" bond in the eyes of government that allows them the same rights as married couples. All you need is a certified attorney to accomplish it - and they know it. They just insist on whining about not just being "equal" - but "special". Married? Get real!
