The issue of same-sex marriage has generated heated debate over the leeway of legalizing this kind of marriage in the globe. The first law enabling this type of marriage was enacted in the twenty-first century. This marriage has varied the jurisdiction to state laws. Equality, sense of belonging and dignity are all contained as compared to the typical marriage of different sex.
The current discussion on this topic has been based on an article tackling the same issue. The article is by Australian Marriage Equality.Org.

Marriages of the same sex are legally accepted in other countries whereas other nations ban them seriously with penalty measure.

Same-sex marriage has the potential of culminating in the collapse of the western civilization (Rimmerman 2002, 75) which was not the case. Lesbian and gays protested on radio loudly to seek rights and civil liberties just like any couple. In addition to the rights fought or by same-sex partners, there are hundreds of other rights, benefits and responsibilities automatically conferred upon married couples that have implications at the local and state level ,and in relation to employers and private entities.

Some other states have begun issuing licenses to some sex couples like California, which now legally admits the act.
