My view on gay marriage is to each its own. Initially I was somewhat taken aback as I did not understand the urgency to get married. They had scored a major victory to become domestic partners to gain health insurance benefits. From a religious standpoint, I feel that marriage should be between woman and man. However, my personal world view, is that if two people regardless of sexual orientation should be allowed to marry. I do not think it is a constitutional issue and feel that each state should hold the legal right to decide whether to legalize marriage in their state. I am more concerned about the rights of children is this country. Child welfare is in my opinion much more of an issue than whether we accept same-sex marriage.
