    Default If same-sex marriage makes your tax more difficult, will you still support it?

    Just wondering, as I read that somewhere as an argument against same sex marriage.

    More difficult for the people in the marriage you mean?

    I would still support it - it's all about everyone having the choice to get married after all - do not need to do it if dont want to.

    In what way would it make tax more difficult?

    No someone said that same-sex marriage makes tax forms more difficult for everyone to fill out.

    Yeah, I don't see how, but anyway. Apparently it's a valid reason to oppose it.

    I have no idea. Maybe there'll be another box to tick?

    I really don't understand it. But if it did- in any way, would it change your stance?

    Ok, after a quick google it seems to be applicable to people living in America. And only applicable to the couples themselves.

    No it wouldn't make me change my stance on same sex marriage.

    Thanks RP.

    It seemed a little ridiculous to me. But I'm a little biased...

    It's because in America federal law doesn't recognise same sex marriage, but some states do, so the couples would potentially fill out 3-4 tax returns per year.

    Default Re: If same-sex marriage makes your tax more difficult, will you still support it?

    If i am not having a same sex marriage i dont see how my tax return would be any different,

    Either way yes, a few more forms or a bit of extra paper work to create equality for all in my country.

    I would support this even if i was a dead set heterosexual lady, being in a hetero relationship but id ing as pansexual this law could very much be about me anyway someday but regardless if it would or not i would say yes.

    Talk about grasping at straws. Ridiculous argument.
