The Destruction of Marriage
Since the beginning of time, the institution of marriage has always been traditionally defined as between a man and a woman, never a man with a man or a woman with a woman.

It would also weaken the respect and existence of the already faltering institution of marriage. Same sex marriage is considered a "slippery slope" that could potentially lead to other things such as incest, polygamy, and bestiality. The original purpose of marriage was to procreate.
