homosexual marriage should be legalized nationwide. Gay couples have just as much of a right to marry as heterosexual couples. The equal protections clause of the constitution demands that every citizen be accorded equal rights, and that includes marriage rights (as decided under Loving v. Virginia, during the fight over interracial marriage).Not legalizing gay marriage is discriminatory and there is no political reason for its illegalization. The Constitution’s commitments to liberty and equality protects gay marriage. Some people think that the word “marriage” can only mean the commitment between a man and a woman; But, many other people think that “marriage” can mean commitment between any two people who love each other and want to share their lives for a long time.. To Put it simply, the only moral and constitutional end to the debate over marriage equality is for gay couples to have the exact same legal status and benefits as straight couples.
