This paper explains that the proponents of same-sex marriage believe that gays and lesbians are being systematically denied their civil rights; but, on the other hand, opponents of same-sex marriage see gay and lesbian unions as a threat to the idea of "traditional" marriage: Both sides argue that the government has a duty to protect and enforce marriage laws. The author supports same-sex marriage by citing the Bill of Rights, which guarantees the freedom of association and the right to privacy. The paper refutes arguments many opponents of gay marriage use as a means of challenging the idea of same-sex marriage: (1) Religion, (2) homosexuality is unnatural, (3) defies the historical definition of marriage and (4) harmful to children.
