Question and answer
why are there two sides on same sex marriages?
Campaigns advocating same-sex marriage are at the forefront of the gay rights movement's attempt to elevate homosexuality to the same moral plane as heterosexuality, [ overturning centuries of established tradition whereby homosexuals were would keep their (according to many Christians) sinful acts hidden. Some opponents of marriage claim its purpose is to destroy the family as an institution, merely to secure a legal basis for sexual freedom. According to some opponents of marriage, the primary purpose of marriage is to bring joy to society as much as to safeguard the development of happy
families, and it is not for individual glory. They believe that unrelated people living together make each other miserable and harm society. Among the many reasons homosexuals might advocate same-sex marriage are the ability to make emergent healthcare decisions for a loved one in the absence of a durable power of attorney or living will, the alteration of the laws of intestate succession to include gay partners, and equal tax treatment as heterosexual married couples. ]

1 Answer/Comment
Two hallowed doctrines in American constitutional law — marriage as a “fundamental right,” and equality as the key to shared freedom — are the foundations of the arguments in favor of opening marriage to same-sex couples. Putting the two together — marriage equality — is the ambitious goal of that movement.
