Currently, the problem regarding homosexual marriage is highly debated. It is argued by some that it is harmful for our community, nevertheless, many desagree. It appears to me that our laws should permit it, due to fact that if it is not allowed these people may fall in a limbo, having no rights for pensions ou to adopt children, for instance, which is not fair.
Gay marriage presents no danger to society, on the contrary, it can be beneficial. Where gay marriage is legal the couples can, for example, adopt children than in other circunstances would not have any parents. Orphans are an enormous issue nowadays, when so many babys are abandoned. When that happens the estate usually have to pay for their saccommodation, food and educatiton. If a gay couple adopt a child, as many will opt for, like my brother did, there will be more tax money for health, security and education. Additionally, gay people are fundamentaly people, and their civil and human rights should not be taken from them.
There is no good reason not to allow gay people to be legally marriage. Everyone´s rights should always be protected, because if not we will never know what human right could be stolen from us next. When politicians commence to interfere on the people´s private life, we are all at a greater danger than homosexual marriage could ever present.
To conclude, although it is often thought that gay marriage is a threath to society, what is happening has demostrated that homosexuals marriage only resulted in positive behaviours, while dening people´s human rights has the exact opposite effect, causing only negative consequences to society as a whole.
