You’ve provided an accurate description of same-sex marriage. It is indeed a marriage between two individuals of the same biological sex and/or gender identity. The legal recognition of same-sex marriage is often referred to as marriage equality or equal marriage by its proponents, as it seeks to provide the same legal rights, benefits, and recognition to same-sex couples as those enjoyed by opposite-sex couples.
However, it’s important to note that the issue of same-sex marriage has been a topic of debate and contention in many parts of the world. Opponents of same-sex marriage often characterize its legalization as “redefining marriage.” These opponents typically hold traditional or conservative views on marriage, and they argue against changing the long-standing definition of marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
