A same-sex couple is two people (both male or both female) who "live together" or "cohabitate" in the same way as other (heterosexual) unmarried couples. A major public relations campaign has been ongoing since the 1990s to make people accept such couples as "married".

A popular argument used to justify same-sex unions is that if society tolerates men and women living as boyfriend and girlfriend, why not boy-boy or girl-girl? Christians have not provided a convincing answer, so gay rights activists have made great inroads with this approach, especially by marginalizing the Christian arguments, saying they are solely based on faith and not universally applicable. They overlook that tradition has well-established secular opposition to same-sex interactions as well.
