Gay marriage is a very touchy subject in our society. It involves all types people with different opinions. It is mostly a conflict from a religious stand point, but only to those that are religious. This is a large problem for the homosexual couple financially. With out a legal marriage document , certain liberties may not be allowed for the couple. These liberties can hurt the couple especially of the problems dealing with health care and home ownership.
