By making marriage the apex of intimate relationships and the primary site for interpersonal rights and responsibilities. Marriage is not “just” anintimate relationship or sacred institution but a nexus of the personaland the instrumental, the emotional and the legal. It can be whimsy andromance, but it can also be strategy and financial respite.Until your lifepartner lies dying in the hospital and you are barred from the room, oryou lose your job for taking time off to care for (and possibly grieve for)her, it may not be so immediately and painfully apparent how instrumentalmarriage rights are. It is striking, in fact, how quickly “rights”come to the forefront of the discourse for everyone, when the matterfor discussion is not simply (presumably heterosexual) “marriage” butis instead qualified as “same-sex marriage.”
Put these phrases into everyday conversation and ones sees the point of departure: in a conversationamong heterosexuals, the word “marriage” is most likely broughtup when someone is talking about a “happy marriage” or a “bad marriage”—an upcoming wedding or, perhaps, a marriage falling apart. Itis notably personal and relational. Add “same-sex” to the word “marriage”instead, and a political debate is invoked. It is no longer simplya personal relationship but a civil right, a “wedge issue,” or a subject oflitigation. The articulation of marriage as a right—and specifically one denied to gays and lesbians as a class—is not itself without controversy.

1. What are the factors that trigger same-sex marriage?
