  1. Hi there,
    I agree that same-sex marriage should be legalized as it’s the individuals right and freedom of choice to do what they want. And personally, I don’t find anything wrong with it since all it does it promote happiness and love between the couple… well unless you have strong religious beliefs then that can affect a lot. Even though I do have a religious background it doesn’t prevent me from believing in human rights and an individuals happiness.
    I like your 3rd sub-claim as it can provide a lot of statistical evidence for the reader, thus proving your point even more and it also emphasizes why it should be legal too.
    Nevertheless, I look forward to your argument. 🙂
