For thousands of years, regardless of the language, the word marriage defined a relationship between a man and a woman. The overwhelming majority of the world's population already owns that word. A minority population group doesn't have the right to assume ownership of something that isn't theirs just because they're a minority. That's hubris multiplied by infinity. It may not be politically correct to say it anymore, but majorities have right too. If same-sex couples want some type of civil union that offers all the same rights as marriage,fine. Just don't call it "marriage".
