    I support it as a basic human right. I have quite a lot of gay and lesbian friends and I dont think many of them actually want to get married, but even if they dont, I think they still deserve the right to choose that or not, not to only have one option. I dont think Christians have a monopoly on marriage nor should they be able to tell other people what marriage is, although I do realise gay marriages arent exactly welcomed in quite a few traditional cultures.

    I absolutely support marriage equality. I consider myself queer I guess. The sex of my partner isn't an issue. I just so happened to fall in love with a man.

    Any way - Wear purple tomorrow for the national day supporting rainbow youth!

    Do you support same sex marriage? Why/why not?
    Yes I do. Love is love no matter the sex of the persons involved.

    Do you think same sex marriage is a threat to your marriage?
    PFFT. Of course not!

    Do you presume a persons' partner is of the opposite sex?
    No I don't. Just like I don't assume that my children are heterosexual.

    Most definitely support it! Everyone should have the right to get married if they choose!!

    No, I don't automatically assume that a persons partner is the opposite gender.

    I've been with my same sex partner for the last 6 years. We have considered being married in Spain, where my partner is from. Same sex marriage has been legal there since 2005. Unfortunately I don't see the point in us being married until it's recognized here... One day I would like to just be able to just say 'yes' when people ask me if I'm married, rather than having to dodge the question, come out to that person, or even worse lie.
    To answer the questions
    1. Yes, I support it.

    2. I'm not married but no, no threat. What would be the threat? I really do not get that.

    3. I can't honestly say I've ever really thought about it.


    I just think it's pretty unfair that because I happen to be in a heterosexual relationship it's fine that my df proposed. It's fine that we'll get married.

    If you* are in a loving, happy, healthy relationship why does it matter what your gender is? What does your relationship have to do with anyone else?

    I think it's disgusting to object. I would automatically find myself no longer friends with someone who thought same sex marriage was wrong.

    I 100% support same sex marriage, I cannot fathom how it is not allowed.

    Same sex marriage has no impact on my marriage, just like no other heterosexual marriage affects my marriage. And as for the 'sanctity' of marriage I can think of a heap of other things that may devalue marriage and it does not include same sex marriage at all.

    I don't assume anyone is in a heterosexual relationship, especially in my line of work. I just use 'partner' for everyone.

    I felt like this until I met a gay woman who does not support it. I was confused, but we agreed to make it a 'lets not discuss' topic. She knows how I feel, I know how she feels and we leave it at that.

    I am 10000000000% FOR!!! I totally agree that it's should be a basic human right to marry whomever you may choose.

    I don't feel it would threaten my marriage. How could it possibly have any bearing on my marriage? I actually waiting on a divorce lol.
