Both sides present arguments as to why or why not, yet the issue has no visible resolution in sight. Pro gay marriage activists cite universal human rights, and anti gay marriage supporters cite parenting concerns, tradition and religious beliefs. It ultimately boils down to the people and what they choose. The same sex marriage question will be answered with votes, either for or against gay marriage. Several states have taken initiative to vote on what is defined as a marriage and make it an amendment to the state constitution. Even then, just as with other questions of "morality," gay marriage will still carry controversy simply because it is a matter of opinion or belief that the issue is either right or wrong. The idea is gaining ground, but it may take time or a generation or two to gain majority acceptance within modern society.
