I know that now it is a legal thing, but I would like to know why. Why are there laws in place that come very close to religious grounds? Do gays want to be married, or just legally bound?

Not traditionally. It's a religious tradition, and one of the oldest traditions period. Therefore, why should it be a contract? Why have we put law and government with religion? After all:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"

This means that the current definition of marriage, or at least your definition, is illegal. All it would take is churches campaigning for marriage to be a religious affair and this entire argument is done. SCOTUS made a legal precedent, not a law at least I hope not, if they did we may soon enter a Brave New World excuse the pun so now courts can rule in the opposite direction and we'll be back to square one.


Thanks for bringing this up, I actually never saw this issue this way until I really got to thinking about it. Then again, I'm currently in the introductory stages of law, so this could very well be faux info.


tl;dr: the Church can put the LGBT groups in checkmate with one move(ment).

Traditionally it is a religious thing. But in the modern day it is a legal contract. Hence the marriage certificate

What? I'll put it as simple as possible for you:

If atheists can marry, gays can, too.

Because of the heavy christian influence in western culture, marriage sorta became the standart thing to do for young couples. And because it was, some laws were built around it since it was a pretty okay indicator for a long term relationship.

In germany, some people marry two times. One time in the "Standesamt", which means you're married in the eyes of the state, and one time in the church, which means you're married in the eyes of god.

You can't get married in the eyes of god alone, you have to at least visit the Standesamt to sign some papers. Because god isn't always there to tell your insurance that you're indeed married.
But it's pretty okay if you don't get married in the eyes of god, because nobody really gives a shit about religion anymore.

I think this system shows pretty well what you don't seem to understand: Marriage is not a religious thing anymore. It is an indicator for a long ass relationship. And for some reason, being in a long ass relationship gives you financial benefits. Like better taxes and insurances.

I thought atheists (at least the ones I personally know (I'm never gonna be in a relationship, so I don't count)) go to a registry office and get a cert that's as valid as a religious ceremony. My uncle did this with his wife and they get all the same benefits those who were married in churches do, although they were "married" in a registry office, which is legally valid from juridical point of view. Why force religions to go against their beliefs, when it can be simply done like this, with the same exact benefits (minus some things churches might give as well on local basis)? This way everybody is happy. Dunndun.

This is more of an "all poodles are dogs but not all dogs are poodles" kind of issue. Marriage may have its origins in religious doctrine/dogma/catma but the fact remains that the institution of marriage is actually a secular, contractual arrangement. While you can have a "religious" marriage overseen by a religious figure of standing, you'd better make sure that the state and/or local gov'ts issue you a marriage license or they will not give two shits about the standing of your marriage in the eyes of the law.

I think this is the confusion at the heart of the matter, people who oppose gay marriage on religious grounds seem to (all too conveniently) forget that while marriage may (or may not, I don't know) have its roots in religion it exists, separately and independently as a legal and government sanctioned contract...after all:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof"
