Same sex couples perceive marriage as a union of two souls. They perceive marriage as something important just as the same as everyone perceives it to be. They feel that marriage is essential because just like any other heterosexual couples, it is a proof of their lifetime commitment to the person who owns their heart.
But does same sex marriage change the definition of marriage? The answer is no. Legalizing same sex couples to marry does not definitely change the definition of marriage. It is only a way to show to everyone that love and commitment are what defines marriage. Not financial status. Not citizenship. And most importantly, not even gender.
Critics of same sex marriage may say that this kind of union will only damage heterosexual marriage, however, an article from The Atlantic argues that same sex marriage may actually contribute to strengthen heterosexual marriage. Why? It is mainly because same sex couples cannot bring gender stereotypes in their marriage, thus, they have the need to work out who to do such roles. Negotiation is important.
Supporting this article is a study made by William Institute last 2011 wherein it was discovered that about one percent of married homosexual couples get divorced each year as compared to the two percent divorce rate of heterosexual couples. This only portrays that same sex relationships are not as destructive as we think.
The issue of same sex marriage and homosexuality have long existed in history but still remains as taboo to some communities. Some people find it hard to accept homosexuals. But come to think of it. Homosexuals are actually the happiest, the most cheerful, and the most fun people to be with. With their contribution to the entertainment and fashion world, it is also a part of our obligation to give them our appreciation. They have been everywhere – from creating high fashioned editorials to producing quality movies to designing couture dresses. They are not as useless as what other people think. In any way or the other, we need them.
Let us not look at them as deviance to the society. Instead, let us look at them as sunshine and rainbows of our own communities. Let us not look at them as a disgrace to the humanity. Let us accept them as part of the human race. Most especially, let us not look at them as perils to the tradition of marriage. Instead, let us give them their rights to have a happy relationship with the person they truly love. Above all, love and commitment are what defines marriage.
