Good.

If people don't like it, then, by all means, don't have one.

*awaits conservative fearmongering, in spite of the fact that, one way or another, it won't change their life.

It's about time someone approached this intelligently and didn't let pseudo-morals get in the way.

Im glad, if people want to undertake the responsibility of marriage, then let them. There are enough wankers out there that get married without any intention of really sticking to it.

Heck, ill be the first to throw rice on them, and you know the reception is going to be a PARTY

Way to go, Massachussetts! .

I just don't understand how anyone could oppose this. I really don't. There's no harm in homosexuals marrying whatsoever. They should be allowed to marry if they want to.

The plaintiffs are members of our community, our neighbors, our coworkers, our friends. We share a common humanity .... Simple principles of decency dictate that we extend to the plaintiffs, and to their new status, full acceptance, tolerance, and respect.
We should do so because it is the right thing to do."

Finally

But are they going to change the constitution now in order to define marriage as a bond between 1 man and 1 woman?

An adult should be able to marry any other adult regardless of sex.
Geez, I love my country but sometimes I feel I live in such a backward place Stuff like this that pisses me off, no sense of rationality.

Most people who are opposed to gay marriage are opposed to it for some type of religious reason most of the time I think. While it is their right to feel this way, you can't legislate based on a religious belief. Allowing them to marry isn't hurting anyone, yes it may offend some, but just cause you find something offensive doesn't mean it should be against the law. I find Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire offensive. Do I think it should be illegal? No. You shouldn't try to legislate morality.
For clarity's sake, gay marriage doesn't offend me and I don't have any religious belief against it.
