Same sex marriage has been a disputable issue in the United States, and proponents and opponents of this issue have their own opinions and arguments. The proponents claim that government should allow same sex marriage and heterosexual’s marriage should receive the benefits and legal rights like a normal marriage. On the other hand, opponents claim that allowing the same sex marriage will weaken the definition of institution of marriage, so same sex marriage should not be legalized. Many people heatedly have debated over this issue and this issue has not been settled yet.

By legalizing the same sex marriage with benefits as heterosexual couples receive, the orphans will get more chances to find their foster parents who love them and take care of them.

Also, some of people, who oppose same sex marriage, claim that changing the definition of marriage would give a misinterpretation of what the marriage is in our society and that will affect the children.

Also, it is only in the recent past that marriage has been anything other than ownership of that one woman. When women stood up and fought for their rights against the government, most of men were upset about losing control of over the possession that the government guaranteed them. The traditional definition of marriage in this society perhaps does not fit with homosexuals as right now, but the definition and structure of marriage has been changed over time and it will be changed sooner or later.

    The term ''mother'' is ambiguous between a woman who gives birth and a female who parents, that is, rears a child--often but not necessarily the same woman. The term ''motherhood'' is ambiguous between the experience of mothers (in either sense, usually the second) and a social practice the rules of which structure child rearing. It is the latter that interests me here. Just as some today would stretch the concept of ''family'' to cover any committed partnership, household, or close and enduring network of friends, others would stretch the concept of ''motherhood'' to c
