    Adding descriptive information in front of something doesn't make it something else, at least not for something like this. The marriages according to the law are still the same. They still work the same way whether they are opposite sex marriages or same sex marriages, interracial marriage or intraracial marriages, interfaith marriage or same faith marriages or even no faith marriages.
    Yes. With whom are you arguing?

    OK. Fair enough.

    You'll have to back that up. I don't believe it's true. It was so "unprevalent" as to be nonexistent.

It isn't that hard to figure out why the change has happened at the rate it has, technology.
    Technology is only part of the answer.

    I suggest that is why the change has come so fast this time.

    It's the largest part of it. Exposure is the leading cause for such a dramatic change of views in such a short period of time.

    There has, as well, been a sea change in attitudes going back to before the tech revolution. I think the critical element was the realization that being gay is not a choice.
