According to the Nevada Governor Jim Gibbons on May 25, 2009 he used his veto right to a bill that would have given same sex marriages the rights and benefits as current opposite sex marriages enjoy. That brings us to this week’s Reader Poll question which asks do you think Nevada should honor same sex marriage with full benefits?  What is your opinion? We want to hear from you!

Reader Poll Replies:

I feel marriages should continue to be between one male and one female, however I have no problem with same sex couples enjoying benefits as married couples.   G Bryan  NY

Even though I have several gay friends and I feel they should be treated better in many situations, I do fee strongly on marriage amoung one person from each sex. Howard T. 

Ok, you got me responding again. Well personally I and my wife don't care. I'f you let gays and lesbians marry you get there fees for licenses and what not. Secondly it sounds like people who are worried about loseing a future mate to a gay person, don't worry. Just let them live like fellow people and wave good day like anyone else. I for one am not gay but would much rather have my children wonder why people of the same sex like each other, rather than wonder why people kill people for fun.  Chad Wright  hinsdale, N.H.

Yes! It's not just about same sex marriages. What about the thousands of couples who choose to remain in heterosexual relationships? The governors hypocracy is showing Bigtime. If he enters into a relationship with a female does that mean that he must give up all of his rights & privileges since he would not be in a government sanctioned
relationship? Just asking.   Charles Fox  Las Vegas/NV

I would vote to veto that bill too if I was the governor.But its not really any of our busness. I think it should be up to the ones giving the benefites. I think if the goverment would stay out of it. let the places decide on their own, weather they want to give the benefites or
not. Then I think the proble would take care of its self. What gives the goverment the right to decide what we give to other people. If I don't want to insure someone, I shouldn't be told I have too.  Steve  Sedalia,Mo

To each his own where partners are concerned, but I think it makes a huge statement that the "marriage capital" of America only honors marriages between a man and a woman, as God intended.  Tammy Cole  Williamstown, Mo

Full benefits should be accorded to Anyone who has paid for them by work or their taxes. Most employers' benefits cover spouses and children, and "single" employees essentially get screwed out of those benefits and get less of a benefits package. Social Security goes to a spouse or children upon the death of the other. If you're single nobody gets anything. We should be able to designate Anyone we choose, regardless of orientation, gender roles or whether they come from another planet.   Cindy Ballard   Ann Arbor, MI

It may not be politically correct, but I still believe that a marriage is between one man and one woman. Calling it a domestic partnership is just semantics. It's still just another way to say marriage. The US was founded on Christian principles and they are eroding fast enough as it is without further giving into the ways of a vocal minority. I'm not against gay couples, but I do believe that they do not meet the qualifications of marriage and should not get the benefit of such.  Sally D.  Huntsville, TX

No, marriage should be left to one man, one woman. What's next?  Letting people marry animals?  Randy  Gettysburg PA

I guess I am still a traditional person and marriage to me is two people of opposite sex.  If the world would want something else, then we all would have the ability to produce children.  Thank you.  Betty S.  Virginia.
