WGBH Forum Network; Case Against Same-Sex Marriage, The

04/06/2006

The Case Against Same-Sex Marriage Maggie Gallagher, president , Instit for Marriage & Public Policy Mrs. Gallagher argues that to the only way to win the gay marriage debate is to win the marriage debate: to emerge with a deeper, richer, understanding of marriage as a social and legal institution. In Massachusetts, the Supreme Judicial Court ruled that there is no rational reason why marriage has been almost universally considered a union of husband and wife. Other courts in New York and New Jersey recently disagreed. Why do we have laws about marriage? What is a "civil union"? The debate is not over. Maggie Gallagher, President of the Institute for Marriage and Public Policy is a nationally syndicated columnist, and the author of three books on marriage.
