How does legalized gay marriage "ruin" or affect a heterosexual one?


One of the most common arguments against gay marriage is that legalizing gay marriage will somehow minimize or ruin heterosexual marriages. Admittedly, this is one of the stupidest arguments out there, but it is one of the one I hear most often. I want to know one thing about a heterosexual marriage that will be "ruined" because gay people are allowed to be married.

    Your are right this sure depicts the most basic ignorance in our society. It is truly frightening that there are those who really believe these comments as true.

    I tend to agree, but I'm interested in seeing the responses. Other people's marriages don't affect mine at all. Christian marriages don't diminish mine. It's a legal contract. I'm interested in seeing other responses.

    So, I got married to my wife today - anyone's heterosexual marriage imploded yet???? No? Figured. It only affects me, her and our unborn child (and ok, our families...but in the same way a straight one does!).

    most of us do. In my personal experience, it seems like there's a lot of people who TRULY want to believe that it HAS an impact - and a negative one at that. Thanks for weighing in.

    Sure DON'T,ain't that the truth. Really, some people have atavistic notions about what marriage should be.There are THOSE people who believe that the TRUE purpose of marriage is procreation & those who wish not to have children are totally amiss

    Re abuse - understood. Education - I do understand that too. But, I wouldn't want to assume my child is gay, or is not, and teach only one side as 'right'. The best way to kill a questioning teen is by telling them they are inherently wrong.
