During his campaign, Mr Obama promised to abolish the Defence of Marriage Act (DOMA) which defines marriage as a commitment between a man and a woman. More recently, during a dinner organized by a gay organization in Washington, the US President reasserted his belief in their cause. It is a sign that things are changing and that the gay case is now taken in consideration. Yet it is still an open debate whether gays should or shouldn't be allowed to marry. I personally deem that they should, as I can't see any reason why people who want to couldn't commit to one another.

Strangely enough, a majority of American still strongly oppose to the gay people's will to marry. Strangely, because not only is this a shocking decision and a proof of narrow-minding, but also a paradoxical will, given that those people justify their choice by saying that marriage is a fundamental social institution. Still, if they truly believed that much in marriage, they should be proud that people see it as something important, and not preventing them to have access to such a great thing.
