My Opinion on Gay Marriage

I think there is nothing wrong with gay marriages. Gays have as much right to be happy as straight people, and they have as much right to feel secure in their respective relationships (through marriage) as straight people. There are gays who have more love in their respective relationships than straight people in theirs. A person's sexual preference for the same sex doesn't make her/him any less loving, dependable and responsible as your average heterosexual. It may even make her/him a bit more sensitive and loving, because s/he must have experienced discrimination in one form or the other and survived it.
I think a society that is open to gay marriages is a freer society. It has realized that what is essential is the respect, love and understanding between individuals and not something as petty as an individual's sexual preference.
