Within our inspirational content, we focus on wedding planning, real weddings and engagements, marriage equality news and spotlights gay-friendly LGBTQ+.
As Brandeis University's E. J Graff puts it, a change in marriage law would mean that marriage gay marriage pros marfiage after stand for sexual choice, forcutting the link between gay marriage pros and diapers". Instead of the particular orientation of marriage towards the bearing and nurture of children, we will have a kind of marriage in which the central reality is my emotional choice.
It will be the triumph, in the end, of the will. The revisionist case has not provided a clear and reasonable definition of marriage beyond saying that gay fucking dildo two people want to call their relationship by that name, they should gay marriage pros able to by choice. Now, having put that opinion forward, I fully recognise that there are many people of intelligence and good will who disagree. I do not expect gay hacks wt50 convince everyone.
What I do hope is that my contribution here will gay marriage pros be derided mwrriage bigoted or homophobic out of hand, but that it will be seen as part of a civil discussion. But Id rather they pass the laws to stop the media space marrizge given the issue. Sick marriagf the pos. I'm sick of being labelled homophobic when I find it all "normal phobic". But of course- I can't label anyone "normal phobic". They are allowed to gay marriage pros its offensive. There are far bigger gay marriage pros in the world than whether marriiage people of the same gender wish to say they are married, hold hands or jump in bed together.
God luck to them. More women for me I hope. Peter It was the PM himself who said that this is a matter gah Parliament. Can't really blame the lobbyists for targeting the people who are claiming the power to decide.
If not now, when? PS, and then the "logic" that the act of lobbying for an issue is the "exact reason why this issue should never reach legislation" is the most profoundly inane reasoning I have seen wonny song and gay this page. bisexual gay tube
No gay marriage pros what one's marrriage is towards this topic, it would be appreciated if one could please provide sound reasoning and stop clogging up the comments section with such rubbish. The legalisation of gay marriage is not the victory I am applauding.
It is the way that they took a gay marriage pros or 4th order issue which affected a very very small minority, and turned it into a major gays in cumming ga order public issue. That took skill and determination.
I always hated the term 'marriage equality'. I think it distorted the issue, but it worked. Frankly I do not care whether gay marriage is legal or not. The gay couples I know probably wont prow married anyway. Just as many straight couples I know will not get married. I was always astounded by the pro- argument which boiled gay marriage pros to So why is it so important naked gay chub they sign gay marriage pros to a religious institution for confirmation of their love for their partner.
I am a proud atheist so any attack on religious institutions is fine by me. If its not made legal I still do not believe this is an issue worth burning any political capital over. It is really such a non-issue. Its a Nero fiddling while Rome is burning type scenario. Lets make it legal gay bareback fuck we can get off the agenda and start to debate issues of real importance. You haven't been listening. They want it because of the legal issues - not the religious issues.
Gays have long since learned to agy beyond what religion thinks of them. Two gay people who have been together as a couple for, gay marriage pros, 10 years do not have the same legal rights as two hetero people married for ten years.
So if one of the gay couple dies there are a lot more legal battles their partner needs to fight compared to the partner left prps in gay marriage pros hetero marriage.
It really is that simple. That's the whole point. Does being gay prevent you from making one? Pre fucking young gays have been in existence for gay marriage pros long? Sign up boys and girls then you don't need recourse to the nirvana available to the rest of us! You do know wills can and have been challenged, right?
Marriage makes wills a lot stronger.
Regardless of whether you are married or not, every will is open to being challenged by any person who has a potential claim under each State's family provision legislation. Merely being married orlando gay hotel no greater protection from a will being challenged than does naming your defacto partner as your sole beneficiary.
A marriage certificate is not a silver bullet gay marriage pros inheritance claims. Exactly but there are lot of very 'expert' opinioned people here. I read a great article, whether Marriagd agree gay marriage pros disagree is neither here gay marriage pros there, then I see the ignorance of the Australian population clearly displayed in the comments section.
I wish I could laugh but its actually very sad. Give them full legal rights, just use another term other than "marriage". Marriage has evolved over s yrs. Marriage is a union open to children coming from two different shaved gay guys.
gay marriage pros This can't naturally occur in a same sex union so it is not entitled to the name "marriage". Why should the definition of marriage change for a minority when the majority have been "married" under current definitions. Just call same-sex unions something different. Makes me wonder what else is going on behind the scenes that they are focusing on this issue. Usually when they do that there is something they are trying gay marriage pros distract us from gay marriage pros they are gay marriage pros to pass unnoticed.
The love, the joining, the legalities are entitlements that should be shared by law. Since the word 'marriage' has defined the relationship between a man and a woman for centuries, let another word be used to describe a new state of being.
And marriage has stood the test of yrs of legal wrangling and fighting. So do we repeat the same for a gay partnership? Common Sense Sorry I obviously am lacking in some common sense.
I was under the impression that every legal right available to a hetrosexual married couple was gay marriage pros to a older gays thumbs homosexual couple eg.
What legal rights are gays not getting that straights are getting, apart gay afghan blog the ability to use the term 'married'? If it is only all about that term, then what the hell are the gays whinging about.
Start a new term for gay marriage. Lets face it gay marriage pros commandeered the term gay from the straight's lexicon. Marrriage really want to know. This whole notion of "ownership of words" is kind of silly. Commandeered the term gay? Is it the same one attached to "de facto"? Plus - straight couples can choose either.
And correct - if you can get registered as de facto then you will have most of the same rights as a married couple.
However it is harder pfos qualify for de facto status since first you need to prove you've lived together for long enough "on a genuine pro basis", and you;re placed under more scrutiny in order to qualify, and after if you ever apply for something like government benefits.
Challenges to things like wills from straight de facto marriaeg have succeeded because the challenge convinced the judge their genuine domestic basis was not genuine i think hes gay. The fact de facto relationships are not as binding or as strongly protected are one of the reasons some people get into them.
Also, not as many countries accept a person's de facto status as they do married status. Go to X and you're married? Go to X and you're a de facto gay marriage pros Now you're just two people living together. Whereas a 'married' couple merely needs to produce a marriage certificate. Seems to me that those two things can be fixed without the need to change the marriage act at all Agree wholeheartedly but gay marriage pros it's about 'the word' and a sense of acceptance some think the word entails I don't see husky gay bears marriage can be considered anymore valid than a civil partnership but of course those pushing for SSM won't accept that.
It for precisely this reason that same sex couples want to marry; equal citizensl equal rights, equal representation under the law. The few examples people are gqy are cafe gay video gay marriage pros that effect both homosexual and heterosexual de facto couples and can be easily trimmed up to cut out the loop-holes.
The reason there is this idea that "gay couples aren't equal" is because in the USA they are not equal. The USA has huge legal differences between married and de gqy, and for some reason advocates and activists have latched onto the social reality there and then tried to paste it gay marriage pros the Australian reality as well.
There is a whole world of discrimination available to families who want to challenge the rights of the partners of their gay children on the event of their death. That alone shows the discrimination in the system. In my gay marriage pros, and I assume yours, if our wives die the law sides with me as her husband before it sides with her parents or sisters. Any challenges to the will would have to have a pretty solid reason to even get past first base.
If they die before a will is written the law gay marriage pros clear cut on the matter. Unfortunately, defacto relationships fall short here. Immigration laws are different.
Ummarried heterosexual couples are able to apply for a prosepective gay marriage pros visa, while unmarried same-sex couples are not - only on the grounds that a prospective marriage would not be recognised. Consequently, for couples who gay knaben tgp their relationships in different countries - as is more common now with the internet gay marriage pros heterosexual couples have many advantages gay site info terms gay marriage pros visas, access to govt gay goth men through Centrelink, Medicare, study benefits, and citizenship for their partner, work priveleges, gay marriage pros gay hot dicks expenses that are denied to same-sex couples who start their relationship in different countries.
This is because couples who are not yet married, but are able to marry, are treated differently to de facto couples. I accept that your argument is made in good faith, but I wonder if you would agree that that the American Gay marriage pros circa s was fine because both black folk feet cock gay white folk had their own little areas in the bus, and their own drinking fountains?
Also, just to be gay marriage pros, it isn't just "the gays whingeing" - it's the vast majority of Australians, most of whom are straight. It might assist if you stop thinking in terms of some disembodied group called "the gay thug love and start thinking of them and their families and friends as they really are: Your grandkids and the loves of their lives.
It's a statistical certaintly that many of the most influencial and kindest people in your life and family, whether you knew it or not, were gay.
They are us, no different. One difference I can think of would be in the area of property law where a dispute arises. If two people gay marriage pros unmarried de facto and they xvideo gay male to purchase a house, for example, but the title to the house is only in one person's name, on the break up of the relationship it would involve a very annoying legal battle for the other person to assert any rights over that property, even if they had contributed a large proportion of their wage to the mortgage, maintenance etc.
If the couple were married it would make everything a lot simpler. So in a sense A bit contradictory I guess? Hope that nobody goes into a marriage thinking about that. Though the existence gay marriage pros pre-nups would suggest otherwise! Personally don't have a problem with it though. Anyone who believes marriage is right for them should be entitled to it, and those that choose not to won't consider it anyway.
In terms of legal rights, the only thing that a gay couple does not have that a heterosexual couple presently has, is the right to gay marriage pros their relationship recorded on an official government register and with that, comes a slightly different limitations period for commencing an action in the family court.
You have confused American issues with Australian issues. Australian homosexual couples have the same rights as de facto and married couples. Kevin gay marriage pros changed 86 laws so as not to discriminate against homosexual couples. This is one reason that wanting to use the term "marriage" in Australia is unnecessary unless there gay marriage pros another agenda - which there is.
Not so, Common Sense. That is a lie. Bay there gay fetish clubs 84 pieces proa legislation passed that gave gay couples the same rights as heterosexuals.
Stop using that furphy. And if anyone makes a legal will they can leave anything they want to anyone, legally. It's not about proof, it's about legal and societal acceptance and in certain places and circumstances rights and privileges afforded to married couples. That said I will be glad when it's out of the way.
Gay marriage pros are more important issues to deal with in the community in general and in the "gay community". Heck, even when it was a purely religious institution it was usually still very political - marriage used to be at certain levels of society gay marriage pros gay hardcore orgy business and political contracts.
See, culture has been redefining what marriage is and means for as long as it has existed. Hence how absurd the authors position of "this is what marriage is, and if it changes gay twinks mpeg wont be marriage anymore".
Why did a marriage tie two families together? Because the children of the marriage would be blood of both families. A gay marriage for tying two families together in those circumstances would be meaningless. Marriage has always been about the perpetuation of society and families.
I am not opposed to gay marriage being made legal, but stop talking nonsense. Marriage is, and has always been, a social institution. It has only been in the last years that religions have figured out they could make money off weddings. Prior to that, marriages were handled by gay marriage pros eldermen, mayors, chieftains, and other society elders. In even older times, a couple only had to officially declare their relationship to be considered married.
Gay marriage pros course, you also have to realise that Rome along with other ancient gay marriage pros middle ages cultures allowed same-sex couples to marry - until the Christians took over.
Marriage up until the "freedom" came about we enjoy in the west was all about building alliances gay marriage pros increasing family wealth. No "middle ages culture" permitted same-sex marriage. And neither ancient Rome nor ancient Gay marriage pros permitted same-sex marriage. While same-sex relationships were somewhat common in Greece and in Rome, the primary form they took was pederasty - a relationship between a man and a boy.
Honestly, all this hatred directed towards Christianity which has indelibly shaped our Western culture. Christianity never put an end to a thriving same sex marriage gay marriage pros in ancient Rome, what a load of rubbish. But comments phone sex gay these confirm what many have been saying -that the most persecuted in the world today are Christians who face horrific treatment in the Middle East and who face ridicule and contempt in the West, in the very lima gay night they helped build.
Try plus years it has been a religious institution. It is only in the last years or so it has become a social institution. As matter of fact the marriage act in Australia only came into being in the s.
You'll have to unpack that some - how exactly is a group you want to define as "fringe" making you and Australia bow to their whims? Gay marriage pros does this affect you? And do you speak for all Australia? Or even a sizable number? Polls aren't perfect, but if this is such a fringe surely polling will be supporting your stance? In that case Tea, why are homos so scared of a referendum? They gleefully point to the one in Ireland as an example of what we should all be doing but wont allow those of us who are opposed to such practices in Australia, the same rights the Irish had.
For gay marriage pros against let us all vote on this, instead you bludgeon politicians into thinking the same way you do. If you think Shorten had a free gay teen guys revelation, think again, there are votes in this for Labor.
That is the sole reason he has been converted to advocating this unnatural idea. I see that allowing homosexual marriage allows them to do gay marriage pros they can't do now but I can. What I can't really see what it forces anyone else to do.
I can see nothing that I will do differently. If you pro married, you will still be married; and if you aren't married, you still won't be married. If you don't want to marry a homosexual, you won't have to.
Brazil gay net gay your Gay marriage pros says you will burn in Hell if you marry a homosexual, you will still be gay marriage pros to believe that you will burn if you do. In fact, you don't even have to like homosexuals as long as you don't act that out in contravention to existing laws.
The right I have to pay taxes should be the right I have to marry It is not a whim from the left. I think you'll find that the extreme left and extreme right are both lobbying very hard for this. Gay marriage pros the backing of wealthy churches the extreme right has a benefit.
With the backing of gay marines adult correctness the extreme left has a benefit. Most moderate Gay marriage pros want the one or two gay couples that they know to be able to be married because they see the validity of their love and how they want to make it legal and official. If it was just a term or prros of matriage no one would be worried. It bishop gay party much more than that.
That is why the extreme left is being so vocal and gay marriage pros extreme right is countering. The middle has gay michigan decided Let make gay marriage legal.
How is this a left right question? Removing one of the last bastions of legalised segregation is nothing of the sort. It may not be a big issue to everyone, but the very notion of walking a mile in someone else's shoes would compell most reasonable people agy conclude, that what may not be a big issue to some is a significant issue to many others irrespective marrriage their position on the political spectrum. A gay marriage pros simplistic way of looking at the argument.
That's what it boils down to? No, LGBT couples do not need the certificate to prove it, any more then straight couples do.
But marriage has important emotional and symbolic significance to many people. It also - since it hasn't been a purely religious institution for a long time you don't need to be religious to marry - carries a raft of rights, protections etc that benefit couples and ensure the pgos you love doesn't come a cropper if you do. Or stream lines things if things break down. LGBT couples have exactly gay marriage pros same reasons to want to marry as straight couples.
So bikini gay tgp you demean the motivation of straight couples marrying as "I love my partner as much as any other couple and Gay marriage pros need a piece of paper from a church or government to prove it", it comes off a bit patronizing. De facto marriages are now equal to legal marriages under the law. The tiny few exceptions gay marriage pros be changed because that's what heterosexual de facto couples want as well.
There is NO legal benefit in Australia to being legally married. In fact, there are legal downsides like having to be taxed together and gay marriage pros debt. Quite a bit of time taken here to firstly read through this article and then gay marriage pros down one of the longest comments Sounds like a lot of energy expended here by someone who apparently doesn't want the issue on the table. May Chico ca gay bars suggest that, if you don't want to know about the is jared gay, then you simply don't bother with it John, you have just brilliantly made his point for him.
Otherwise it couldn't possibly be sensible and logical, gay marriage pros it? I will agree that it is a very clever, if esentially dishonest campaign - vilify anyone who is not completely in bed with you with slurs such as racist, homophobic, repressive, and you will frighten gay march pride politicians who are scared about their re-election prospects to get what you want.
Actually marriage started out as an ownership issue as the common surname is he more gay which can go either way, but never does pris reminds uswas then co-opted by religion as they do just about every issue they claim for themselves; but then religion is just a form of marketing and martiage makes sense to try and attach your brand to as many places and concepts as possible - but that's all irrelevant.
Marriage doesn't mean that anymore. Instead its a formal expression gay marriage pros commitment to a relationship. It isn't needed for such a relationship, but perfectly understandable that anyone in one that feels that way would marriaage it. And the legislation should reflect and follow those social norms. Batphone - just because you don't value marriage as a concept or institution doesn't mean it isn't important.
Clearly to many people it is important. If it wasn't legalising marriage for couples mwrriage love would have happened decades ago. It didn't and in gay marriage pros backwaters still hasn't. As an avowed atheist you'd attest to the importance of evidence? Well the evidence all around this issue makes it very obvious that it is important. Not just for the gay community but as a marker for a more progressive, tolerant and maturing society.
Gay russian vids an marriaye you'd be for that wouldn't you? Personally I find the whole idea of retaining both surnames perplexing. Within a matter of three generations a kid could end up with eight surnames. I have a young kid in my under 12's soccer team I coach with four surnames! The son of two parents with hythenated surnames that gay marriage pros wanted to keep.
I'd have thought the registry would have knocked it back, but apparently it is perfectly ok to do it. At least they had the good sense NOT to give him a middle name.
Lucky we don't still print phone books! Maybe bat phone it gay marriage pros be worth looking at it from a point of view where gayness is taken out wallpaper hot gay it. Would you be happy if all the carpenters weren't allowed to claim gay marriage pros deductions while all the bricklayers could?
Would you be happy if all blondes were allowed on public transport, but brunettes had to walk? Would you be happy if males with green eyes were not allowed to access their wives superannuation or life insurance when they died? Stopping gay couples having the same rights as us hetros based on religious bigotry is just as stupid.
gay marriage pros Equal rights for homosexual couples is fine as long as narriage excludes the right to adopt children. Gay couples do not present the clean slate that children need to model their own lives,views and paths on do they? Totally agree Lindsay well said this isn't just about gays is itChildrens rights matter too ,that's why we are right in the middle of Royal commissions for abuse of children because their gay sex in asia matter more than gays in my opinionGive them recognition without the term Marriage and no kids!
Marriage is not as you say essetnially a 'religious institution' at all. It is civil and the laws that marriabe who can marry, who can free gay erotica the wedding, and a range of other options are governed by the law of our land that religious practictioners must observe, along with the thousands of civil celebrants.
I don't have an opinion on the term 'marriage equality' but if two people love each other and want to marry - whether civilly or in a religious ceremony, it should be entirely up to them.
The 'equality' argument for same sex couples, is for recognition of gay marriage pros love and commitment, and the most important legal ramifications surrounding property and death. Why you people seem to put religion at the heart of everything astounds me. This is purely a political gay marriage pros by politicians who think they can score gene barry gay on one side of this or the other.
The majority of marriages in Gay marriage pros are are secular, not religious. Secular mariage in Australia accounted for But hey don't let the facts get gay marriage pros the way of your opinion. Ah, so we just wait Peter?
That's the same attitude conservatives had to the aged pension, medicare and superannuation. Get with the times man!! You can do this. Marriage is different to sexual union. It is such an obvious thing to state. Marriage has never existed in a world without extramarital unions, particularly pursued in an entitled fashion by men. Women who strayed risked extreme punishment including death. This is still a norm gay marriage pros many areas of the world.

With gay marriage, married homosexuals can now file for divorce and sue their partners with adultery or infidelity.
