During the latter half of the twentieth and the beginning of the twenty-first centuries, homosexuality has become a contentious issue. Since homosexuality is so divisive, much of the discussion has focused on whether it is a choice, a condition, or even a criminal offence. The debate has been rife with a variety of viewpoints. Every person’s dream in the modern world and throughout history has been to get married and start a family. To be so deeply ingrained in society and demanded of everyone, marriage has been exclusive to specific groups of people since its inception. Every time a group of people is allowed or denied the right to marry, war is conducted between public policy, religion, and social expectations. The question of same-sex marriage is also facing the same issue. For the purpose of this article, we are going to look at the social, political, and legal aspects of Indian same-sex marriage. To understand why some people are reluctant to accept a more inclusive form of marriage, this book investigates the origins of marriage. In this work, the simple and sophisticated definitions of marriage are examined in detail. Arguments against same-sex marriage are examined in detail. Here, we examine whether or not changing the structure and purpose of marriage could be accomplished by altering its components.
