Lastly, the society is well-defined by the culture of the people that lives within. It shows the differences and similarities therein. We all know that in a country like ours, United States of America, there are different ethnic groups that lives in here. Our culture defines our values, and preferences of a society. Thus, some people do not agree with abortion, same sex marriages, some still treats people with color differently, and others agree with legalization of marijuana. In connection to that, since culture and politics define and influence our society, I believe same-sex marriage relates to sociology. People see same-sex marriage as a social problem, simply because there are some people who does not believe in it and does not agree with it, and there are some who wants it to be permitted. According to William’s list “ People in the United States believe in equality of opportunity, yet they may also look down on others because of their sex or race.” This is very accurate, people want equivalence, however some of those look down on others because of their outlook in life. Also, some people back in 1973 stated that it is “always wrong” or “almost always wrong” to have a homosexual relationship. Three fourths of the adult in the United States claimed this statement. To further this study, I would use an existing data research method. Existing data is a research method “ in which a researcher uses data already collected by others.” (Macionis,
