The impact of the approach would be different based on the legal implications of the problem. The legal implications of the problem included a change in the legal direction of the country in relation to marriage and definition.
Consequently, a proposal by the conservative wing of the population believes that banning of the same sex marriage could solve the already heated debate. However, it may create a more serious challenge as compared to the current problem.
