    Same-Sex Marriage, How long till it's legal

    This isnt about whether you support it or are for same sex marriage or think its ok. What I am asking is how long do you think it will be until american politics makes it legal.

    A while ago I thought I wouldn't see it in my life time but my daughter would. But now with some bigotry dying every day and people fighting for equal rights for all americans and america always slowing righting its wrongs, ridding itself of discrimination my pick is 10 years max.

    The support for equal gay rights has been growing strong as of late and there are even plenty of those that don't agree with it that support equality and don't want to discriminate.

    Also looking at a similar issue support for same sex marriage has is dramatically passed what the support for interracial marriage was. Currently its around 50+%, sadly interracial marriage didn't have a majority approval until around 1997 (30 years after it was made legal, pathetic)

    What do you think.

    0-5 years
    5-10 years
    10-15 years
    15-20 years
    20-25 years
    25+ years
    Never

    I'm thinking 0-5 years. At least I hope. It's pathetic that two people that love each other can't marry.

    I want it to be legalized, but I doubt it will ever be legalized in all states. Marriage is not a Federal issue, it would be up to all the states to legalize issuing a marriage license to homosexual couples. There are several states that would need to amend their state constitutions to do this.

    It could easily be made legal in all states if the supreme court declares it unconstitutional to deny them just like Loving V. Virgina.

    The thing is though, is that it's a state's rights issue. Marriage isn't mentioned in the constitution nor is sexuality mentioned. there is the equal protection clause, but that doesn't prevent states from legally defining marriage between a male husband and female wife. I highly doubt that all the states will legalize gay marriage. At best the Supreme Court could force states to legally recognize gay marriages performed in states where it is legal.

    Thats because theres no logic behind this point of view, at least pertaining to law, freedoms and America equality. All the BS reasons have been thoroughly debunked but those threads have been done.
