I feel like I am the only one who is not in favor of that and one who has a traditional view on marriage.

Everyone deserves the chance to be happy even if they're gay. If being married will make them happy why should people deny them that right? In the Declaration of Independence it says, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." It took this country long enough to realize that that applied to the poor as well as the rich, women as well as men, and blacks as well as whites. Why shouldn't it apply to homosexuals as well as heterosexuals?
You're entitled to your opinion but to me people who oppose gay marriage aren't any different from people who thought that women and blacks shouldn't be able to vote. Keep in mind that at the time when those were heavily debated topics people made very arguments as to why people shouldn't be allowed to vote. Once upon a time interracial marriage wasn't allowed in some states. As a black girl that's always been attracted to white guys if that was still the case then if I lived in states where interracial marriage was illegal I probably wouldn't get married. I'm sure there are still people out there who oppose interracial marriage but there's never been any good argument as to why it shouldn't be allowed. I've yet to hear a good argument as to why gay marriage shouldn't be allowed and I don't think I ever will because there isn't one. If you're convinced gay marriage is wrong then you're more than welcome to feel that way, but no one should be allowed to deny someone happiness because they don't think there should be two men or two women in one bed.3
