I don’t believe gay people should get married… now that I have your attention and before you grab your pitchforks ready to protest let me clarify, I don’t believe anyone should get married-gay or straight. It bothers me that all these extremists argue that marriage is a sacred bond between man and woman, if that were true then divorce would be obsolete. Once you decide to tie the knot, it should be illegal to get a divorce. Up until the 19th century, many marriages were arranged and marrying for love wasn’t even an issue. Now we say that if you love someone enough then you should marry him or her, even Beyonce wrote a song about it, but if my opinion counts for anything and I’d like to think that it does, I say don’t.
Why ruin what such a beautiful thing by getting the law and church involved? When I decide to casually fornicate, I don’t go to my local church or court house to get permission each time so what makes marriage so different.
If you’re reading this and you’re thinking about getting married, don’t and if you already are, I am sorry. Statistically, all of marriages are doomed to fail, not to be a cynical, it’s rare these days people will put in the time and effort to make these things work. Let’s just pretend that marriage doesn’t exist, people just live together and are bonded emotionally and spiritually instead of legally, would you invent marriage?
Love isn’t perfect, it can get messy alot of times, but why is it when people divorce they feel like they should be compensated for it?
All these TV shows push the idea that if you love someone then marriage is logically the next step in the relationship, how about I love you so much that I don’t wanna ruin this thing of ours with marriage. People reading this might wonder if I have a fear of commitment and I’d like to tell them that I don’t know. I haven’t been lucky enough to have a relationship that lasted more than just a few hours. (Joking!) If you’re reading this and you still wanna get married then good for you… But before you do be sure to split everything you own in half now to save you the time. I’ll even give the toast!
