More Than Half Of Americans Support Gay Marriage
People's attitudes are changing. A new article says Obama may adopt legislation to make it recognized nationwide. A new Gallup Poll found that half of Americans believe same-sex couples should have the same right to marry as heterosexuals do. That's actually down from a year ago, but it was the second year that a majority of Americans supported same-sex marriage.
70% of heterosexual marriages fail, and second marriages, even worse. I can't believe that big business isn't a part of same sex marriage, look at all the money that could be made by all of these same sex couples getting married. More Tuxes, more dresses, more catering, more DJ's and bands getting work, better economy because there is more spending.
Last year's Gallup's survey marked the first time in the poll's history that a majority of Americans favored legalization of same-sex marriage. Gallup first asked the question in 1996, when only 27 percent of respondents supported it.
This year's poll found Americans divided their decision along political and religious lines. Almost two-thirds of Democrats support allowing same-sex marriage, along with more than half of independents. Fewer than a quarter of Republicans believe it should be allowed.
Whether it's right or wrong is not what I'm writing about. There are many things in our society that are considered wrong and yet they are legalized or adopted into the world we live in. I know some same sex couples who are better suited to raise children as a couple than most of my hetero friends.
This is a subject people are passionate about both for and against it, and neither side is wrong, because everyone is raised differently. All I'm trying to say is, who would it hurt if same sex marriage was legalized.
