    this is absolutely a fair comparison as right now there are only 10 states in the U.S. that allow same-sex marriages. There are other states like Texas and North Carolina that have amendments to their state constitutions stating that not even civil unions are considered valid in that state and will not be recognized. A same-sex married couple could lose some rights merely by crossing some state lines

What this debate is about is the small benefits homosexual couples would receive if the government recognised them as being married.
