Gay marriages increase state revenue ✔ According to a 2014 study done by the Williams Institute at the University of California at Laos Angeles UCL, legalization of gay marriages would boost the state's economy to a great extent. 11 states in the country including Michigan, Ohio, Texas, Nevada, Arizona, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Utah, Virginia, and Oregon, were analysed in this respect. Gay marriages may best man diminish heterosexual unions ✗ One of the strongest arguments among those against this union is the fact that same-sex marriages may diminish the heterosexual culture in the society. President, Bill Clinton, under whose leadership the defence of Marriage Act Roma was passed in 1996, himself has accepted that the fabric of social structure has changed appreciably and expressed his support for the 'Respect of Marriage Act' to give same-sex couples the right to marry. Gay marriages hamper domestic partnership benefits ✗ In the past few years, the states that have legalized same-sex marriages have ceased to grant benefits to domestic partners, be it of the same or opposite sex. Marriage should be a union of two people who love each other, irrespective of their sexual orientation or gender.
At the National Review Institute 2013 summits, Doug Mainwaring, a gay panellist spoke the following words, “For a long time I thought, if I could just find the right partner, we could raise my kids together, but it became increasingly apparent to me, even if I found somebody else exactly like me, who loved my kids as much as I do, there would still be a gaping hole in their lives because they need a mom,” He further added, “I don't want to see children being engineered for same-sex couples where there is either a mom missing or a dad missing,” Same-sex unions will encourage other non-typical unions ✗ Another possible threat that a worldwide acceptance of gay marriages arises is that it may give encouragement to those in other non-typical sexual unions, such as those that involve incestuousness, polygamy, bestiality, and the like.
