Out of curiosity, why do gay people want marriage? At the end of the day, it is a religious ceremony founded on the idea of joining a man and woman. If its the rights they want, than a civil union works fine, but honestly why would any gay couple want a marriage specifically? I'm all for the equal treatment of everyone, but why is it so important to have marriage? I have a gay uncle and him and his partner have a civil union so they have the same rights as a married couple in case one dies/gets sick and all of that. But they live 2 hours away from a legal gay marriage state, and they've always said they don't want to get married. They've been together for decades and they only cared about the rights. Which they have now. But why do gays care so much about marriage? I barely want to get married myself.

well the problem is ,you are wrong. At the end of the day it WAS a religious ceremony, a ******** of ppl marry and dont believe in god the slightest. Society made it that way, just look at the elvis wedding in las vegas or whatever.
No one cares about that, no one is getting mad that most of the ppl (dunno in usa, but lets say in germany) dont care about god and still are getting married.
And if a gay couple wants that too, its suddenly a religious thing only and bla bla ******** bla bla

My uncle, though gay, considers himself Catholic. It's what he was brought up as and he doesn't see why he should be unable to marry, as other Catholics can.

It's a matter of principal, having a special title put on the marrage.

And not all gay people are atheist, a christian gay person would want it done in the eyes of god.

Marriage has been around for thousands of years longer than Christianity. It has been the thing that couples do in recognition of their love for basically as long as civilization's existence.
#35 to #12 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
Except marriage isn't a religious ceremony, as it was founded before the majority of major religions as a way to protect the woman from the wilds by joining her with a man. (Aka barbarian times) Why do today's religions always think they invented it?

And now, it's mainly about rights. Civil unions do not have the same rights. Why should gay people have an entirely different title for something so basic that it can be covered under one? Why do you alienate them when marriage isn't even religious? Why do they have to live like black people - same bus, but they get the back seats while whites get the front ones?

Plus, who says gay people can't be Christians and wish to be recognized under God as a couple?

Marriage isn't just religious. It provides many civil rights as well like sharing insurance and such.
User avatar #65 to #12 - fosforgasxiii (01/31/2013) [-]
Marriage isn't necessairy religious, at least not where I live. You just have to marry at the town hall (marriage for law), a religious marriage is just optional.

They want the peace of mind and acknowledgement that they are normal and fit in with society.
User avatar #20 to #14 - TastyBurger (01/31/2013) [-]
That's perfectly reasonable, but wouldn't the civil union cover that? That's the government saying that they view them as an equal couple, just the same as a married man and woman. Its just the process in which they do it.
User avatar #32 to #20 - emmyizme (01/31/2013) [-]
You aren't getting it. "Civil Union" carries different rights in different places. Marriage carries the same right in all places. Plus the fact that everyone else gets "Marriage" while they get "Civil Union" is still segregating and attempting to simply appease them. They want to be treated the same as everyone else, and by withholding the option of Marriage from them, we are not treating them equally. Sure plenty of them would still choose not to get married, just as many straight couples choose not to. But they want to have the choice.
User avatar #39 to #32 - TastyBurger (01/31/2013) [-]
I understand that. But even if they marry, its not going to mean anything in a lot of countries. gay married couples that move over to England won't have any rights. Nor in a large amount of countries. I'm not trying to start things or say gays shouldn't have the option, I'm just wanting to know why they want to have the option for a ceremony that was designed for a man and woman.

I don't know any Jewish people who want to be baptized. If I was gay, I wouldn't care about the ceremony. I'd just want the rights and the recognition. When I do marry my girlfriend, it won't be about the ceremony, its so the government will recognize our union.
#67 to #39 - anon (01/31/2013) [-]
You can't be this stupid. Let me put this to you extremely simply:

Black people should go to different schools while whites go to the normal ones. They're still schools, so it's fine.
Blacks should live in different cities, while whites live in the same ones. They're still cities, so it's fine.
Blacks should have different rights but have them have the exact same meaning. They're still rights, so it's fine.

The only purpose of ^ that was to make the racists happy and tell black people they don't belong in the same class of white people. And yes, they did have that argument when discussing equal rights.

The only purpose to this is to make extremists who think marriage began with religion and that gays shouldn't be a part of said religion happy. You're still saying they're aliens and don't belong. It's a non-solution.

Oh, I''m sorry. I didn't know I was saying gays weren't equal to us. Cause I could have sworn I said, "I'm just looking for reasons why they care about a pointless ceremony and not just the rights". Someone's already explained exactly what you did. I'm not arguing against it, I was asking a simple question. No need to be a dick.

It's not about the marriage itself; it's about what marriage is symbolic of romantically, as well as the rights it gives both people in the marriage that they do not get in civil unions
User avatar #40 to #12 - TastyBurger (01/31/2013) [-]
You all have good points, and I didn't mean to cause a **** storm, I was just looking for points why gays wanted the ceremony of marriage rather than just the rights. :)
#15 to #12 - restfullwicked ONLINE (01/31/2013) [-]
its more complicated than most people understand. In England at least if you aren't married you cant be on the same health insurance nor be treated by any company health plan etc. it also has some problem with burial rights and things like Tax. married couples get their earnings taxed differently in most countries.
User avatar #47 to #12 - antistar (01/31/2013) [-]
The argument is similar to the "Equal but Separate" idea during the Civil Rights movement. An idea was to give blacks everything the exact same as whites, but separate (exact school replica, but still segregated). It was ruled that "Equal and Separate" has no function other than to make said group feel inferior. Same idea goes with "marriages" and "civil unions".
User avatar #18 to #12 - lolollo (01/31/2013) [-]
Civil unions don't have the same rights, like being able to visit in a hospital in the event of an emergency, or filing joit tax returns.
#21 to #18 - arandomanon (01/31/2013) [-]
Depending of where you live. Where I live you don't have to be married neither united to have those rights. You only need to register you and your partner as "couple" at the townhall, pay a small fee and done, it's like you're married.
User avatar #27 to #21 - lolollo (01/31/2013) [-]
But getting married and having that title prevents the drama of having to live in the right state, since "married" is nation wide.
User avatar #31 to #18 - benjaminbutton (01/31/2013) [-]
So the real problem is too give civil unions the same rights as marriage. Looks like we have a whole new war on our hands.
User avatar #24 to #18 - TastyBurger (01/31/2013) [-]
I thought it did. They're both able to file taxes together and able to list each other as spouse. Maybe it varies from place to place.

But my point still remains, if gay couple were given the same rights as married couples, but aren't allowed a marriage ceremony, would that really be all that bad?
User avatar #37 to #24 - nucularwar (01/31/2013) [-]
I think the principle of it is important too, it's still discrimination, just petty discrimination.
User avatar #29 to #24 - lolollo (01/31/2013) [-]
I'm fairly certain it's the "on paper" part that's important since it allows them all of their rights.

Plus, I bet a good chunk of it is the sheer idea that there are still people out there who want to prevent them from having those rights not of bigotry. How would you feel if a large group of people hated you for something about you that you have absolutely no control over?

Three goats AND a cow? Looks like someone is valuing their daughter way above market value. What happened to a case of beer? This country is falling apart and everybody's just sitting around like nothing is wrong.

Case of beer = Your daughter

I don't know where you get off saying she's worth all that livestock.

No, the original post is talking about selling your daughter and getting 3 goats and a cow in exchange.

Instead of Dollars and Cents, the currency back then was farm animals.
