You are probably saying to your self why should I sign this petition. Well because everyone deserves to have the chance to get married and divorced no matter what Sexuality they are. Even if you don't agree with Same-sex marriage you should still sign because what do we do to you. It's not like we are killing your children or anything. If you sign this petition I thank you.

To:
Congress
President of the United States
U.S. House of Representatives
U.S. Senate
Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Massachusetts
I find this subject very important to me and I know it is important to many people throughout the United States. I want to ask you what is so wrong with same-sex marriage that it can't be legal and yes I know you have a law that states marriage should be between man and women which is the
DOMA Act, but times have changed and I think it is time we change to.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Correspondents say the decision in effect authorities gay marriage.

      However full legalization depends on approval of a bill being examined by the Congress.

      Tuesday's resolution by Brazil's National Council of Justice was based on a 2011 Supreme Court ruling that recognized same-sex civil unions.

      However, notaries public were not legally bound to converting such union into marriage when asked by gay couples.

      This led to some being denied marriage certificates at certain places, but being granted the document at others. That would be illegal, according to the new resolution.

      The ruling brings Brazil one step closer to its neighbours Argentina and Uruguay, which have leg

    3. Gay marriage passes in Minnesota House

      ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — A pivotal vote Thursday in the Minnesota House positioned that state to become the 12th in the country to allow gay marriages and the first in the Midwest to pass such a law out of its Legislature.

      The 75-59 vote was seen as the critical step for the measure, which would allow same-sex weddings beginning Aug. 1. It's a startling shift in the state, where just six months earlier voters surprisingly turned back an effort to ban them in the Minnesota Constitution.

      The state Senate is expected to consider the bill Monday, and leaders expect it to pass there. Gov. Mark Dayton has pledged to sign it into law.

      Because this country was founded on equality. If there is a true division between church and state, the state needs to stop dictating who we can and can not spend our lives with.
