Why some people wish marriage was abolished

Some say it would be more “progressive” than a gay marriage, while others say it’s not a real option at all.
But a few have decided they can still support it.
Key points:Marilyn, who identifies as transgender, says she wants her marriage to remain “pro-family”Marilynn said she feels “a little bit like a prisoner”Marianne, who prefers to remain anonymous, said she wants to marry someone who is “prolife and supportive of my family”.
“I don’t want my children to have to grow up in a household where their parents are gay,” she said.
“It’s been my whole life that I have always loved my family.”
If there’s something that is going to take away from the way I grew up and who I am, then it’s going to be something that I will never want.
“I’m not a person that is a closeted homosexual.”
Mariann said she had always been attracted to men and her family, but said she found herself attracted to a “different kind of man”.
“He’s so strong, so confident, so passionate about things,” she explained.
“He always seemed like a good man.”
She said she wanted her marriage “to remain pro-family”.
“Marrying is something that’s meant to be the foundation of your family.
I feel like a little bit trapped,” she told ABC Radio Melbourne.”
This is something I have to do, and I think that’s a lot of pressure that I’m feeling.”
Marilyns family is supportive of her decision.
“The family supports me in this, and they’ve been supportive of me for a long time,” she added.
“My family is a very close family, and we’re very close to my husband.”
We’ve always supported each other, and now that we’ve got this change that’s going on, that’s really great.
“Maryns father is “100 per cent” in favour of her marriage changing, but her mother is not so keen.”
She’s really not happy with it,” her mother said.’
I feel like the most dangerous woman in the world’Marilyne said she wished she could “make it right” with her partner, but would not be “happy” with the outcome.”
No matter what I do, it’s always going to bring problems,” she admitted.”
So I feel that if I marry somebody that’s not committed to being a good husband and father, that that would be the end of my life.
“When I say that, it doesn’t make sense to me.”
She wants to be able “to be a good mother”.
“It would be like, I don’t know, a bad father, but I don.
I can’t be a bad mother.”‘
This is the last gasp of an idea’Mariane says her family wants her to be “a good, loyal husband and a good, loving mother”.
Marianna said she would not want her marriage changed because “the only people that will change this is people who are in denial”.
“The reason why we are doing this is because we know that it’s the last refuge of the people who hate gay people, who are the ones that are trying to turn our country into a safe space for people to live their lives in,” she concluded.
