Same-sex couples in the United States have been trying to legalize same-sex marriages for many years. This past June, their efforts were again successful when Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed into law the right to same-sex marriage in the state of New York, which is now the largest state in the country where same-sex couples can wed.New York joins the ranks of five other states that currently allow same-sex marriages: Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Vermont, as well as the District of Columbia. What do Coloradoans think? This month’s Streetwise question: Should gay marriages be legalized? Why or why not?
PeytonI guess (I would) yes. Not that I am with or against it (same-sex couples). They should be able to make that choice. It is becoming legalized in a lot of other places, so yes.
PeytonI mean why not if that is who they are. They should have the right to do so. I know the Bible is against it, but if you find the right person to love you can’t help it. So then, yes.
FalconI believe a marriage should be between a man and a woman. That’s the way it was ordained and it’s just natural. I have nothing against gays.
FalconNo, because I’m a traditionalist as far as marriage is concerned in that it should be between a man and a woman. The sidebar to that is I don’t care what people do, but my fear is them trying to impose things on other people. But once you legalize it, who knows where they may go.
