English Composition II – Dr. Margarette Connor
Over the past years there have been many arguments surrounding gay marriage. These arguments also have led into disagreements with gay adoption and the definition of family. In this paper I will discuss how gay marriage is not affecting anyone elses lives. I will also discuss my own definition of family and how gay couples do not alter that definition at all. I will explain why I support gay marriage with logical reasoning and evidence based on my own knowledge and experiences. Lastly, I will bring up opposing views of gay marriage and explain why they are wrong or inaccurate.

In most places they arent allowed to marry, adopt, and theyre looked down upon for wanting a family. Nobody would choose to be something that a large majority of the United States is against. I am sure most homosexuals wished they werent born gay, so they wouldnt have to go through all the hate.
A lot of people think gay couples should also not be allowed to raise children. They fear that they will raise that child in a gay environment and he or she will end up the same way. However do you realize that
