All through life people have had a picture for what a family should look like, and what it should be like. When other people are not there for you, your family is. But now people having same-sex marriages are ruining the image and tradition of family. If we the citizens of this country let same-sex marriages proceed, our young will think this type of family is all right.

Same-sex marriages are happening all over the world. Most people don't approve of this type of marriage but they don't know if they should be allowed to ban it. Banning same-sex marriages should be acceptable and there should be no complaints. This is a very unhealthy lifestyle, especially if it is around young kids who absorb all behaviors of adults.

In places like California, Connecticut, New Jersey and Vermont, they accept same-sex marriages. Mostly they give people with same-sex marriages all of the civil union benefits and that is it. If they didn't believe this type of life wasn't wrong why don't they get the full benefits? State polls from Ohio, Michigan, Illinois, Florida, etc., show that 60 percent of Americans believe that same-sex marriages should be banned, but are split on whether a ban should be written into the U.S. Constitution. If this is bothering people so bad, why should this be allowed and legal?

Some people believe same-sex marriages are perfectly acceptable. This is a mockery for one, as this type of life is unethical and is not accepted in many religions. Secondly, this marriage isn't in the best interest of the children. This will also lead the way to moral depravity.

If we citizens of our country care about the future and we don't put a law on same-sex marriages, then we could make it so they have to live in a limited periphery. And when they are in public they could be a little less open on what they do.
