These days gay marriage has become a hotly contested isssue. There is an opinion that it is detrimental to the society while others consider it a matter of personal choice. This essay will argue why gay marriage should not be legalised.
The logic given by the people supporting the issue is that it is a matter of individual preference. Nobody even the state has any right to intervene in the decision of a person. Otherwise, it will be considered as an encroachment on personal freedom. Secondly, there is a need to accept the diversity human race possesses. Without this, the world would become a cold and mundane sphere.
Moreover, Some psychologists argue that being gay is a byborne characteristic. Trying to alter the trait is not only futile but a foolish idea as well.
However, there are strong arguments against this case. Firstly, gay marriage goes against the very concept of family the essence of which is the union of a male and a female. Forming a couple of same gender is not only against the rules of nature but also does not favour social aesthetics. Secondly, it goes against the religious values. For example, all the major religions have considered homosexuality as a notorious thing and hence forbidden its practice.
There are logics both in favour of and against gay marriage. Some argue that it is an intrinsic property of a person while others deny it. According to them, it leaves detrimental effects on the society. As his matter is not supported by social and religious principles this type of marriage should not be a part of the law.
