I haven't read everything..but read this in a jodi picoult book (well soemthing along these lines "It's not whats ont he outside that matters, bt the inside"...
Love is blind, they say....and love isn't always about the physichal appearance, but the personality traits, the little things that make a person, who he/she is..so I dont think it is wrong, every one has a right to love who they want to love, and what they want to love

Looks like same sex marriages are being recognized in more countries apart from USA.

 

 

Same-sex unions recognized by Brazil's high court

From Marilia Brocchetto and Luciani Gomes, for CNN

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
    NEW: A gay rights advocate calls the decision a "historic achievement" The court votes 10-0 in favor of recognizing same-sex unions The court rules that same-sex couples have the same legal rights as heterosexual couples
  • At least 60,000 homosexual couples live in Brazil, preliminary census data shows
RELATED TOPICS

(CNN) -- Brazil's Supreme Court ruled unanimously Thursday that the nation should recognize same-sex unions.

The court voted 10-0 in favor of recognizing the unions. One justice abstained because he had spoken publicly in favor of same-sex unions when he was attorney general.

The court ruled that the same rights and rules that apply to "stable unions" of heterosexual couples will apply to same-sex couples, including the right to joint declaration of income tax, pension, inheritance and property sharing.

The ruling does not allow same-sex marriage, but gay rights activists hailed it as an important advance for same-sex couples. Previously, decisions related to same-sex unions were left for judges to evaluate on a case-by-case basis.

Cleber Vicente, project coordinator for the Rainbow Group in Rio de Janeiro, called the decision "a historic achievement," the state-run Agencia Brasil reported.

"There is something to celebrate this result," he said. "It is a struggle that stretches for over 15 years."

Some gay rights groups have encountered strong resistance in parts of Latin America, where the influential Roman Catholic Church often opposes measures allowing same-sex unions or adoption by same-sex couples.

Argentina became the first Latin American country to approve same-sex marriage in 2010. Mexico City approved same-sex marriage in 2009. And several other countries in the region have legalized civil unions.

Brazil's high court ruling came in response to two lawsuits -- one filed by the Rio de Janeiro state government in 2008 and another in 2009 by the Public Ministry, a group of prosecutors that is part of the federal government but independent from its executive, legislative and judicial branches.

Gilmar Mendes, a Supreme Court justice, told Agencia Brasil that the court has an obligation to respond to protect gay couples who are still victims of prejudice and violence.

"This legal limbo that (same-sex couples encounter) contributes to discrimination, even to the violent practices that have (been) seen in the news. It is the duty of the state to protect and duty of the court to give that protection if, somehow, it was not intended by the legislature," he said.

According to preliminary results of the country's 2010 census, at least 60,000 homosexual couples live in Brazil.

Same-sex marriage ceremony

Same-sex marriage in the United States first became legal in the U.S. state Massachusetts in 2004. The federal government of the United States does not recognize the marriages of same-sex couples and is prohibited from doing so by the Defense of Marriage Act. Same-sex marriage licenses are granted in five states: Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, plus Washington, D.C. and the Coquille Indian Tribe in Oregon. Same-sex marriages could be legally performed in California between June 16, 2008, and November 4, 2008, when voters passed Proposition 8 prohibiting same-sex marriages. The legalization of same-sex marriage was driven by court rulings and legislative action.[1]

States that recognize same-sex marriage but do not grant same-sex marriage licenses include New York, Rhode Island, and Maryland.[2][3][4]

As of March 2011, 41 states prohibit same-sex marriage via state statutes or state constitutions.

The movement to obtain marriage rights and benefits for same-sex couples in the United States began in the early 1970s.[citation needed] The issue became even more prominent in U.S. politics in the mid-1990s after Congress passed the Defense of Marriage Act in 1996. However, in the opening decade of the 21st century, public support for its legalization grew considerably.[5] Two polls taken in 2010 by CNN and the Associated Press found support for allowing same-sex marriage in the United States exceeded 50% for the first time.[6][7] However, poll results still vary widely, and the issue remains politically divisive in the United States.

If two girls/women or two boys/men are attracted to each other then how can anyone stop that? lol. The most government can do is not recognize their relationship. Also there is issue of "rights" and "freedom" and all that.
 
Personally I don't like such things. It is against the nature. If everyone became that then we will no longer have anyone left to get attracted to each other lol.
 
 Anyway who cares what we think. people will do what they want to do.
