-===Background and Context of Debate:===+
- +
-The gay marriage movement has been developing for well over a decade in the United States. Along with this movement, a strong counter-movement has grown. The passage of the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) in 1996 marked a strong federal response and rejection of gay marriage, and was supported by 68% of Americans.[http://rpc.senate.gov/releases/2003/jd072903.pdf] The DOMA did two things. First, it recognized the traditional definition of marriage as between one man and one woman for all aspects of federal law. Second, it ensured that no State is obligated to accept another State’s non-traditional marriages (or civil unions) by operation of the Constitution’s Full Faith and Credit Clause (art. IV, sec. 1). Following the passage of this law, thirty-seven States passed their own constitutional amendments or statutes commonly known as “state DOMAs” that further protect traditional, heterosexual marriage. For a time, this settled the debate. The gay marriage movement, however, continued to grow in support, the American public has become increasingly acceptant of the idea (polls showing support between roughly 35% and 45%), and a number of state and municipal governments began challenging the DOMA after the millenia. With this increasing government and public support of the idea of gay marriage, opponents of gay marriage intensified their campaign, and in February 2004 for example, President Bush officially supported legislation designed to constitutionally ban gay marriage. This counter-movement to constitutionally ban gay marriage both on a federal and state level has certainly increased the stakes of the debate. Accompanying the state legislative "DOMAs" banning gay marriage have been a number of challenges and decisions in state supreme courts. In July, 2006, for example, New York’s highest court voted 4-to-2 that a legislative ban on same-sex marriage did not violate the state Constitution. This added to a small list of state rulings on the issue, including those of Indiana and Arizona (both of which also upheld legislative bans) and Massachusetts (which overturned a legislative ban).[http://travel2.nytimes.com/2006/07/14/opinion/14yoshino.html]+

- +
-*See [[Debate:Homosexuality]] - The above question is asked first because it would not make sense to allow for gay marriage if homosexuality could be concluded as immoral. Conversely, it can make sense for gay marriage to exist if it is concluded as moral or within the bounds of individual choice.+

- +
-Homosexuality is not wrong in that it should not be judged by others. Homosexuality may in fact be wrong in they eyes of a particular dogmatic sects, but this in know way implies that the act is necessarily wrong and should not be judged by man. Whether or not homosexuality is wrong in other areas such as in the context of religious beliefs is completely another debate and should not be considered in this context.+
- +
-Marriage is a religious institution and hence should not be governed and regulated by law.+
- +
-Therefore, in the eyes of government, marriage should not be recognized. Government should only recognize civil unions between any two people hetero or homosexual.+

-*[[Argument:The inability to have children should not prevent marriage| The inability to have children should not prevent marriage]] - Infertile couples are able to get married, why not homosexuals that can't reproduce together?+
- +
-Many children in the United States, let alone the world are orphaned. Same sex marages generally adopt children in need of a family. This benifits the United States even more than a couple having a child.+
- +
-Some married homosexual women have a baby. They simply implant one womans egg into the other womans body and then fertilize it with and unknown doners sperm. After the baby is born, in replace of the father's name, the others spouses names can be stated. +

- +
-*[[Argument:Marriage should be defined as between a man and a woman| Marriage should be defined as between a man and a woman]]. Marriage has always been viewed by society as the religious and/or civil union between a man and a woman, and has always been regarded primarily as a heterosexual institution. This has involved thousands of years of tradition. The length of this tradition has made it unnecessary to produce a clear definition defining it. But, now that this lengthy tradition of marriage is under threat, its full historical force should be leveled in now defining it as between a man and a woman. If homosexual couples want equal protection under the law, that is one thing, but to call it "marriage" is to violate the rooted tradition and meaning of marriage.+

-*'''Marriage is an institution of religion.''' The state has an institution of it's own called "Civil Unions". The state should recognize civil unions between same sex couples, since they should be afforded the same rights under government as any other partnership (i.e. marriage). The idea of marriage should be defined only in the context of religious beliefes and the state should not have any power over what the church deems as approriate or inapproriate.+

-*Also known as the “love contract”, the registration of the union of gay couples has been carried out successfully in countries such as Finland, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium and Spain. This would be an avenue for gay couples to declare their union to the world. The practice in countries which implement this system is to allow registered couples to be entitled to joint insurance coverage and to allow them to file for joint tax returns as well as inheritance and tenants’ rights. On the other hand, such a proposal makes no incursions into the sanctity of the institution of marriage itself, thereby proving acceptable to the religious sections of society.+

-*An alternative to marriage is the registration of the union of gay couples. However, any proposed alternative to marriage itself would be unacceptable as “registered” gay couples would still not enjoy completely equal rights as married heterosexual couples in society. Moreover, this would also fuel the idea that registered gay couples enjoy an inferior status to married heterosexual couples, thereby giving rise to discrimination all over again.+
