The issue of LGBT rights, once marginal, has moved firmly and permanently into the mainstream political discourse. The visibility and voices of the gay and lesbian community this time around are far louder and insistent; the political parties are more responsive, and, in some cases, they are actively courting and competing for the community’s support. For example is the recent news on Obama’s evolution on gay issues takes another turn. It certainly will bring bright future of gay rights and marriage legalization. But, will you get married if government legalize gay marriage?

My partner and I were the first to marry (physically being) in Scotland, the morning it became legal.   Another couple flew to Australia so they could get married under Scottish law at the embassy, making them the 1st gay Scottish marriage.

We found out when we got married that we were the 1st to have a Civil Partnership in the Scottish Highlands, but 6th in all of Scotland.


I don't like the term "gay rights", as we are not fighting for gay rights but for equality.   Unlike the other protected groups, we aren't asking for special rights (quotas, affirmative action, special laws enshrining our bigotry, etc, etc).

While I admit that legalization of gay marriage is a huge leap in equality. (And it saves a lot of headaches around government-sponsored benefits and wills, not to mention rights a gay couple will be able to enjoy) I wouldn't marry because of personal views.  Nevertheless, I would take precautions to ensure my life-partner's well being in case something happened to me, and would ask the same from him as well.

Marriage has its pros and cons and it shouldn't be considered lightly.  Legalization of gay marriage should make gay couples (specially young ones) rethink their situation and plan their future with this new option in perspective as marriage gives both rights and obligations.

If I ever decide to marry it will be after a long and thoughtful consideration about me, my partner and our future together.

Being able to get married is great...if you're into marriage, if you're into only having one partner (or an open relationship), and if you don't actually expect it to afford you any magical equal rights.

I have no interest in marriage. It feels far too much like attempting to mimic something that doesn't really mean that much even to the people who had it exclusively for so long. I don't believe in it, I don't agree with it, and I'm only going to be treated equally if I can rely on any authority to actually treat me that way...which is a lot to expect.

Actually, it does "magically" afford you many equal rights.  It grants gays the same rights (that only come with marriage) that heteros have been able to enjoy for centuries.

No, absolutely not!
