Love is love...

Governor Herbert isn’t recognizing same-sex marriages. He implies that it could ruin how the customs were originally created. That it is a sacred oath between a man and a woman and if it were to be opened to same-sex couples that it wouldn’t be the same in any situation.

Since it is not legal, they say that it is unconstitutional, but I know that it’s just a matter of opinion from the religious center of our state.

Being married means that couples pay more taxes. It doesn’t affect the people around them because it is not physically or mentally changing their state of being. It is just another thing that religion wants to argue about because it is not a part of the religious custom. The religious figures need to adapt to the new customs for society.

In striking down a section of the Defense of Marriage Act, the U.S. Supremen court found that there should be equal treatment of married couples under federal law, regardless of the makeup of the marriage.

Love is love, and it should be recognized no matter the form or principle of a situation.
