The American culture is rapidly changing and so is the moral code. The government is able to make changes to the laws to accommodate the people. For example, Baker and McConnell sued Nelson for denying marriage application because the Minnesota law on marriage doesn’t mention anything of gender (“Same-Sex Couple”, 2008). Before gay marriage was legal there was no mention of gender on the law of marriage. For this reason, legalizing gay marriage should not have been an argument.“”But, for better and for worse, traditional marriage has already been destroyed,” said E.J.

However, they do not take into account that same-sex marriage goes against Americas cultural beliefs. When it comes to the topic of same-sex marriage, most people will agree that homosexuals take advantage of the leave-way the government gives them.
