    Yes, but I also think that marriage shouldn't be taken as lightly as it is. (People get married too easily these days. They should be fully informed about what it legally means, whereas the majority of those getting married dont know the full implications.)

    I find this a strange statement. Could you extrapolate?

    Yes!

    My wife and I were married legally in Canada, but our marriage is not recognised here in Australia.

    You know what I will never understand? Why centrelink recognizes it as a relationship purely so they don't have to pay out as much money, the government needs to wake up and realise it's all or nothing (preferably all)you can't pick and chose which parts to recognize.

    On the otherhand, has anyone here grown up with same sex parents? I'm really on the fence when it comes to parents because I feel that the children would face some struggles that no child should have to. Or I'd it something outsiders just deal with?

    I fully support but feel for the children that get bullied

    I think she means that it should be something serious for all people, not all but some people just get Married for the wrong reasons,for example I almost married my now ex bf because. I fell pregnant it should be about love not circumstance

    exactly

    I think a lot of people get married simply because it is the done thing. I wish I never got married. I think same-sex couples should have the same right to marry as hetrosexual couples.

    Yes! I'm amazed that this is still a question in our society! I believe that I WILL live to see the day where my daughters are able to marry their soulmate irrespective of gender.

    There are some members here (or used to be?) with same-sex parents, and from memory, they haven't been upset with their childhoods because of their parents sexuality.

    I must say, kids will tease you about anything, and your parents being gay is just one small thing they could choose to target. If they're using your parents as a reason to tease, they might pick on you because your parents are fat, or poor, or are a bit nuts, or are too rich, or your mother's got great big fake tits, or your Dad is totally hot and all your friends want him, or they've got a big nose, or have an obvious birthmark or some other random thing.

    Pretty much nobody could have kids if you think of the things their kids might be teased of because of them. I can think of a bunch of things kids might find on me to tease my daughter about. It's not exactly a reason for her not to exist though.
