It’s commonly known that men and women are equal creatures and have same rights and obligations but they are not identical and usually presume different models of behavior, models of reactions and thinking.A lot of research made by scientists proves that the child needs both – a mother and a father to become a full personality (Orth, 2003).
People were divided into groups of supporters and opponents of such practice. If same-sex marriage is legalized, the world will be changed entirely; it can’t be argued.
Here are several points for and against that legalizing.
The children can meet a social hostility from the very beginning of their social interaction due to their family background which can make more difficult the social adaptation in the future.
A lot of homosexual couples meet social and religious disapproval but they have chosen their type of behavior themselves and must be responsible for their decisions.
There are some things during the upbringing which can be taken only from women’s or only from men’s behavior patters.
The children raised in the homosexual families will not have the opportunity to see both –female and male behavioral patters, which can cause serious problems for their future life.Of course the question of banning same sex marriages if very doubtful but I would wish that during taking the decision all possible negative consequences were taken into consideration.The supporters of the homosexual marriages state that the feelings and freedom of the people shouldn’t be restricted.The idea of homosexual marriages threats the very idea of the sanctity of the marriage.The term “marriage” should refer to a loving relationship between man and woman.People don’t have much faith in the marriage institutions now and the legislation of the heterosexual marriages can weaken this faith.In addition, if the homosexual marriages are legalized to protect the freedom of human why there should be other restrictions for the marriages such as marring the relative or the age of getting married?All people should have a right to marry someone who he or she likes in spite of sexual identity.However, when one speaks about such kind of freedom, one rarely thinks about homosexuals. As they are citizens of a certain country, they have own duties and surely they should have a right to choose whom to marry. To provide peace between different social groups in the country, minorities’ rights have to be respected.The next point is a religious disapproval of the heterosexual relationship in general and marriages in particular.The word “marriage” implies religious significance. People who state against the homosexual marriages claim that homosexuality is against the Christian faith and the Bible and the legalization of this kind of marriage by the state can make a bigger separation between the state power and the religious organizations.
