    I believe in allowing same sex marriage from an equal opportunity standpoint ... but I am very disenfranchised with the idea of marriage and think too many people get married because it is the custom without really understanding what it means (in our current legal climate).

    I support it. It bothers me that politicians factor their own personal beliefs into their decision making (Ears burning Tony?). Just because they don't personally believe in it doesn't mean that others shouldn't be able to choose it.

    Religion and state crossing is scary. What if a jw was running the country? Would they make blood transfusions illegal because they personally don't believe it's right?

    The whole thing doesn't make sense and the issue should have been resolved a long time ago. I hope you get to be married after this election!

    I absolutely support the legalization of same sex marriage. I really can't think of a single good argument why my husband and I were able to marry and a couple who are the same sex cannot. It's a stupid, irrational discrimation.

    Yep 100% support from me. It annoys me that it's even an issue to some people when it's has nothing to do with them and will have no effect on their life in slightest.

    Absolutely support. I have friends who are waiting till its legal here and I hope it's soon!!! If straight people can get married all the time and divorced just as easily then why can't same sex couples have the same right.

    Yes I'm supportive but haven't always been. As a practicing catholic I see it from both sides and was one of those who supported it but not using the word 'marriage'. But now I'm like 'meh - what's it my business?' It doesn't threaten me at all, it isn't my business what happens behind closed doors (so to speak, I'm starting to sound like a prude!) but what swayed me is the argument against same-sex couples not having any rights when it comes to medical, insurance, finances etc just because they're not 'man and woman'. When a same-sex couple have extreme circumstances like major medical decisions (eg life support) and the non-supportive family comes in and makes all the decisions, not the person who has been by their side for the last 10 years. So wrong.

    I support it.

    You should be able to marry the person you love.

    Support it 100%. I see it as a violation of human rights that it is not legalised here. I have never understood the idea that it could impact someone else's marriage, frankly I find that ridiculous.
