Why is gay marriage a government issue in the first place? I can see a connection since you can get married in a courthouse, and you have to apply for a marriage license at the clerk's office... But not a direct effect on government whatsoever. Wait... Wait a minute... Once you get married, you can file for cheaper taxes. Gee, think that could be it? Once all the gay and lesbian couples get married, tax profits would drop.
Honestly, I don't know if I'm speaking out of line here, but I think the option of marriage would be good for the gay community and it's public image. Part of homophobia comes from the concept that gay people are promiscuous. They're promiscuous because they can't get married. If the concept of relationships as it's known to the straight folks were equally applied to gay folks too, I think a lot of good things would happen.
