Argument: Marriage is about love/commitment; gays qualify

Issue Report: Gay marriage


“The Case for Gay Marriage.” The Economist. February 26th, 2004: “The real nature [of marriage is] a binding commitment, at once legal, social and personal, between two people to take on special obligations to one another…If homosexuals want to make such marital commitments to one another, and to society, then why should they be prevented from doing so while other adults, equivalent in all other ways, are allowed to do so?”
