As a parent of a teenager, I find some of the information on teen sex frightening. It is a subject I read,
talk, and learn as much about as I can. The information I gather will help me filter fact from fiction. I want
that knowledge to help my teenager thrive in this difficult time. In reading about this problem, I have
learned that there are many sources of information. This information helps understand the scope of the
problem, the consequences on youth, and the effects on families, schools and the community. It also

Banning same-sex marriage can be seen as discrimination towards the couple which is against human rights. (Lee 56) So, legalizing same-sex marriage will grant the couples benefit from the rights offered by the law. Some of the rights are: the right to pension benefits, tenancy rights, responsibility to provide reasonable maintenance for partners and children, possible parental responsibility for a partner’s children, full recognition for life insurance, the same tax treatment as married couples and visiting rights in hospitals. (O’ Brien 75) When gay marriages are illegalized, those in it will feel that they have been prohibited also to show each other love. (Kranz

Marriage Is Not a Special Right
We have all heard the discussion and arguments about same-sex marriage, well it is reported that there are over 60,000 same-sex couples in relationships and 21,000 married same-sex couples. Homosexuals are hated on and discriminated against because they like the same gender. It is not fair to them that they have to go through this continuously, what if the LGBT community were to make fun and discriminate against heterosexuals and couples, they would feel sad and unwanted just like many homosexuals.
Everyone deserves the right to love who they would like to, and marry whomever they would like because marriage is an essential human right. Homosexuals are

The topic of same sex marriage has been debated for many years of whether or not the United States should legalize it. I support same sex marriages because of equality, love, and knowing that it’s right.

They have ways of changing and influencing internal and external migrations, GMP, birth and death rates among seemingly unrelated things such as educational and medical services.

Sex appeals are used in advertising all the time, and people love to look at it because 'Sometimes people listen better with their eyes' (Steel 137).

There is no doubt that the family is a vital social unit and that it is impressed with great social interest. For these two reasons alone, it is only justified that the preservation of families should be of paramount importance to the government. The government, therefore, must create laws and institute policies that will promote the welfare of families. It should see to it that families are kept away from all social evils that tend to destroy their foundation. At the heart of families, it is said, is the concept of marriage. If families are to be protected, it stands to reason that

The expression of marriage is portrayed through American couples, as men and women. Why do only a man and a woman define a marriage? If we all experience this love then why does it matter whom it is shown to? If someone of the same sex happens to love another person of the same sex whom can justify if these basic rights are unlawful? If we want to legalize same-sex marriage we need to see all the positives and understand why being homosexuality shouldn’t be a form of prejudice.

Most people in the world regard getting married and raising a family as a civil right that is so basic that they do not even question it. However, this civil right does not extend to lesbian and gay couples. Some lesbians and gays exchange vows and rings to symbolize their commitment to one another and to publicly challenge the heterosexual exclusivity of marriage. Others call for an outright ban on heterosexual marriage until same-sex marriage is recognized as a legal right.
These actions and attitudes have contributed to a growing public debate on whether or not lesbians and gays should have the legal right to marry. Although people are generally divided on the issue of lesbian and gay

I think they should not be denied the same rights as heterosexual couples who choose to be married. Some states have already put into law that homosexual couples may be married. Ohio is not one of those states. These couples should be allowed the same benefits as heterosexual married couples.

What this means is has social policy caused more families to be non-nuclear families such as same sex families, single parent families, etc?
One way in which families have become more diverse is an increase in same sex families. This is lesbian and gay couples living with children. Social policies that can be linked to this type of family diversity are laws to do with homosexuality in the UK. For example, in 1967 male homosexuality was legalised in the UK this has made homosexuality more socially accepted
