More than 62% people voted in favour of amending Ireland's constitution to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry. It is the first country in the world to legalize same-sex marriage through a popular vote.
If they are going to raise children it should be mandatory.
Gay couples who are not married should not be allowed to adopt.
Same for straight couples.
P.S. If there are no children involved, gay couples can do whatever they want. Why not????
… and if they do get married, eventually the frying pans will come out and they'll have to get divorced and this is good for the pocketbooks of lawyers and therefore the economy.
It's absurd that this isn't accepted worldwide, and I hope that someday sooner rather than later it is.
If two consenting adults in love want to get married then they should be able to celebrate that like any other couple. I'll never understand why a straight person feels they have the right to tell a gay person what they're allowed to do with their life.

First of all, religion has nothing to do with this question. It is about giving approval to some unnatural act. It all boils down to sex. Marriage is quite unnecessary for having sex. The very definition of marriage is...
