So yes, I support same sex marriage
No, I don't think it's a threat to mine...but then again I don't understand how anyone getting married would be a threat to mine??
I think that if you & your partner want to go overseas to get married, do it!! I've learnt that life is to short for worrying about what others think. I hope you both do what makes you happy

Absolutely support. Find it crazy that people who often go through so much to simply be accepted, find a partner from a smaller pool to begin with, experience discrimination on sometimes a daily basis have it dictated whether they can marry their partner.

Can't threaten my marriage, as I am not married..and no I would never think it would!
Yes I do actually, thank you I will def work on this. I do not assume my children will be hetrosexual. Actually really ****s me off when people say my child will marry xzy someday because they like to play together, like you can only be friends with the op sex if you are in a relationship, or that they even have to be in a relationship..ever. I might suggest my daughter or son will marry someone of the same sex one day when they are playing with a friend just to see peoples reactions!

"There is no doubt that (homosexuality) challenges, if you like, orthodox notions of the right order of things," he told ABC TV last night.
Earlier, gay rights campaigners had raised concerns about the wellbeing of young people struggling with their sexual identity in light of Mr Abbott's views.
Mr Abbott, a former Catholic seminarian, was asked about his views on homosexuality during an interview aired on Channel 9's 60 Minutes.
Mr Abbott answered: "I probably feel a bit threatened, as so many people do. It's a fact of life.

What he doesn't understand is that not everyone thinks of others the way he does.

Definitely support it. If two people love each other and they want to be married then let them marry.
I don't understand why anyone would see same sex marriage a threat to their marriage. ...am l threatened by it? No, but l'm not married. l don't place a huge importance of marriage to my own relationship.
Yes l generally assume that when someone refers to their partner it is someone of the opposite sex.
I can only think if two groups of people who would oppose same sex marriage. The hardcore religious and then the homophobic.

The main debate against it seems to come from religious views... Particularly the catholic church. Religion has a lot to answer for.
there is a difference between religion and law. No one is asking churches to marry same sex couples. No one is asking them to do anything against their faith.
Marriage equality should happen and allow same sex couples the same rights as any other family. Many will not want to marry, but they should have the right to.

Absolutely I do!
I would actually really love to speak to someone who is against it (I have not let anyone yet - which to me says something) to hear their points as to why they're against it. I really don't understand how it's anyones business besides the two people wanting to get married? I REALLY don't understand how it "poses a threat to marriage"?
If it's to do with "making a mockery" of marriage, that's already been done. Not to mention, i STILL dont understand how two same sex people would do that. Look at celebrities getting married and staying married for 5 minutes, or people getting married in Vegas waking up freaking out and getting divorced the next day etc.
I seriously don't understand why the sex of the two people getting married causes such an issue? blows my mind really!

I respectfully I have abstained from this thread but since the former post says she has not met some who is opposed I raise my hand
I don't want to start a fight - for me it is a case of what seems natural. Yes there is likely influence from a religious child hood which I no longer practice.
It does not seem natural. I have some great male friends but don't need to marry them to solidify that friendship. My arguments will be the same as everyone one else's with a similar view and there will be the same counter arguments this. I saw posting as pointless.
Hand raised - now I'll crawl back I to my box.
