同性結婚を認めた国の多くで、婚姻率が高まっています。

また、同性愛者の絶対的な数の少なさから、同性婚が結婚全体に及ぼす影響はそれほど大きくないと考えられます。

結婚という制度も、世俗化や市場化の流れの中で、その性格を柔軟に変化させ続けることで持続することは歴史が示しており、同性婚を認めることは変化であっても結婚制度の終焉ではありません。

Won’t the institution of marriage be destroyed if same-sex marriage is recognized?

In several countries where same-sex marriages are recognized, the marriage rate is increasing.

Furthermore, considering the proportionately small percentage of people who are attracted to the same sex, the effect that same-sex marriages will have on the institution of marriage as a whole is insignificant.

Against the background of evolving trends in secularization and commercialization, the institution of marriage has remained throughout history by being flexible in its attributes. Even though the recognition of same-sex marriage will add a small change to the characteristics of marriage, this change will not contribute to the demise of the overall institution of marriage.
