In article 16 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights it states:
1) Men and women of full age, without any limitation due to race, nationality or religion, have the right to marry and to found a family. They are entitled to equal rights as to marriage, during marriage and at its dissolution.
2) Marriage shall be entered into only with the free and full consent of the intending spouses.
3) The family is the natural and fundamental group unit of society and is entitled to protection by society and the State.
This does NOT limit marriage to Straight Couples, nor does it limit marriage to only TWO people...
So why does they US continue to do so?
Can anyone give me a good reason? Marriage hurts no one, and according to the UN it IS a right which should not be limited to a small group... SO why is it so hard for the US to get on board with this?
*As a note I support both gay and plural marriage!
