The institution of marriage is one of the most important things in the world. Marriage is the binding force of the family, the family is the basic unit of a government. Naturally there are certain laws in place to protect marriage and the family respectively. Since the US Supreme Court said that marriage is a basic human right, for gay and Straight people alike. In this article I will list four of the most important rights that are being denied to unmarried couples.

The ability to choose your next of keen- When you are a young and healthy individual, you will not consider this. But when dying at your death bed, unable to speak, you will see this come to life. Your husband or wife are your default next of keen. Not only for inheritance rights but also deciding on your behalf. You are saying like, step aside brothers and sisters he/she will take care of me.

The ability to petition your partner from another country- I believe that the person you love should be with you in the same bed at night. But before the Supreme Court said that DOMA sign by Bill Clinton in to law is unconstitutional. People could not petition the love of their to live America.

Inheritance rights- Before marriage, gay people have no right with their partners estate. They are literally strangers under the law because of that reality some gay people did extreme measures adoption. Adoption so that they will have a legal relationship.

Spousal benefits- before marriage equality people have no right to health, tax, social security and many more, in fact their are a thousand benefits that before marriage is out of reach for the LGBT community.

Lastly, marriage should be about love and commitment, not the sex of the persons involved. The couple should be able to love the person till death to they part. Finally, marriage is a fundamental human right because love is a foundational Hunan experience.
