Should gay marriages be considered a taboo?

Same sex marriage, also known as gay marriage, meaning marrying within the same sex, i.e. between two men or two women. In most of the country, the legal and the social responses have ranged from celebration on one hand to criminalization on the other. Marrying within the same sex has yet not been legalised in India. They don’t get certain rights enjoyed by the other lot of people. Same sex marriage does have it’s own pros and cons like every other thing in existence. Still, to talk about it should never be frowned upon. This world is for everyone to live, the LGBTQs are no exceptions.

Same Sex marriage – Pros and Cons

Every human in this world has the rights live their life. An Indian citizen has the rights to enjoy their own life in whatever way they wish.

Marriage is a sacred union between two people. Everyone should be given rights to choose their own partner. Gender shouldn’t be a barrier to choose a person with whom one is going to spend their entire life with. It should completely be their own choice. It’s them who has to deal them all. It is quite possible, one may feel attracted to a person of the same gender. If the other person feels the same, there shouldn’t be another thought if they wish to marry and live together for the rest of their lives. It is often said that the people of the same gender understands each other better. Then it may be quite possible that they live a better life indeed. All we need is love, care, support and a partner who understands you like no one else. If that really gets fulfilled, no doubt, same sex marriages will be a great success. But does it really get fulfilled?

A man and a woman is said to complete each other. No, they aren’t equal. Things a man can do, women can’t and vice versa. Both men and women are the two wheels of the society. One needs another to grow. Man by nature is physically stronger, bold, a little arrogant and pride runs in his blood whereas a woman is mentally stronger, calm, and able to handle situations with ease. Men and women together create a balance in the society. The biological process, the process of reproduction, men can’t give birth and women too can’t give birth alone. She needs a man for it. If reproduction doesn’t happen, how will the generation move forward? That’s a serious question indeed, and the society fears the same. Several of the holy books as well is in opposition to gay marriage. Yet, there are countries like Netherlands (2001), Belgium (2003), Spain (2005), Norway (2009), Sweden (2009), Portugal (2010), Iceland (2010), Denmark (2012), France (2013), the United Kingdom (2013), Luxembourg (2015), Ireland (2015), Finland (2017), Malta (2017), Germany (2017), and Austria (2019) which legalized day sex marriage.

According to the 2020 survey

To conclude the same, all I would like to say that the people who wish to marry within the same gender should be allowed to. Not everyone will. Therefore, the generations won’t stop moving further. It’s true to legalise this act is a tough decision indeed. A lot needs to be surveyed and evaluated. One wrong decision may lead to a disaster in the end.

Is India ready to legalise same sex marriage?
