Judgment: And the winner is…

After careful consideration, we rule in favor of Gallagher, the negative argument.

This decision is based on the fact that Wolfson, who represented the affirmative side, failed to meet the burden of proof. While he made some very strong claims, he failed to establish a need with appropriate evidence.

Wolfson made some bold statements regarding how the denial of marriage has such a harsh impact on children during tough economic times, but failed to provide evidence. This leaves the audience wondering how families and individuals experience the disadvantage he asserts. Having the burden of proof, the affirmative argument simply stating that there is a need was not enough. There needs to be evidence to persuade the audience to agree with the need any remedy. Since need was not established in this argument, the burden of proof was not met, and so the negative side won this argument.
