• Top Ten Reasons to Make Gay Marriage Illegal 01) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning. 02) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall. 03) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract. 04) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all like many of the principles on which this great country was founded; women are still property, blacks still can’t marry whites, and divorce is still illegal. 05) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of marriages like Britney Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed. 06) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn’t be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren’t full yet, and the world needs more children. 07) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children. 08) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That’s why we have only one religion in America. 09) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That’s why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children. 10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven’t adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.
  • There is no valid, legal reason why it should remain illegal. The only "reasons" seem to be ones that are based on ignorance, lies, assumptions and stereotypes.
  • Because their will be a plethora of people either getting fradulently/legally married for the marriage tax return, divorce settlements, custody battles etc. The money issue is why I think the government really doesn't want gay marriage to ever be legal besides ignorant intolerance and homophobia.
  • Is it illegal? I thought gay marriages just weren't generally recognized. Nobody should go to jail for getting married. The institution is punishment enough in itself.
  • It shouldn't. (This answer seems moot in light of Anonymous's answer)
  • It shouldn't be illegal period.
  • no reason,no reason at all
  • 9-30-2017 It is amazing how much ignorance there is on this subject. For starters, marriage is a natural condition. You don't need a license for it, and the government does not have the power to refuse permission. However, there is a three way corporation between two people and the state which is also called marriage, and that is what people are concerned about. Second, speaking of the three way corporation now, it is not gay marriage; it is same sex marriage. Things equal to the same thing are equal to each other. The law grants privileges to a union of man and woman, such as the man being presumed to be the father of all the woman's babies. That makes for stable families and parental authority. If two people of the same sex are married and one makes a baby, what is the status of the other? Suddenly it is possible for a kid to have two, three, or four parents and there is no legal precedent to say who gets custody and who pays the bills in any situation. Third, what is the definition of marriage? Traditionally the sex act is considered to be the defining moment, but there is no such distinctive ceremony between two of the same gender. There is precedent for cohabitation to define a marriage. Does that mean room mates in college have to get a divorce at the end of every semester? Or that one room mate can be liable to support the other's babies? What about marriage between corporations? The answer to most or all of these questions is "The courts will decide." That means some judge owns you, just because you thought you needed official permission. And there is no way to avoid it, once the legislation is passed. SAME SEX MARRIAGE MEANS THE COURTS OWN EVERYBODY!
