    How long till Same Sex Marriage is nationally legal in the US?

    I know i asked this about 18 months ago but in light of 11 states (CT, DE, IA, MA, MD, ME, NH, NY, RI, VT, and WA) legalizing it along with DC in the US, 1 pending MN, and possible SCOTUS impact I thought id ask again.

    Around the world its legal in Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Uruguay
    Its legal in parts of Brazil and Mexico like in the US

    And also Bills allowing legal recognition of same-sex marriage have been proposed, are pending, or have passed at least one legislative house in Andorra, Colombia, Finland, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, Nepal, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom, as well as in the legislatures of several sub-national jurisdictions in Scotland as well as parts of Australia.

    So equal rights for gays are coming, the only thing is WHEN, how soon.

    So im curious if people change their time frames when they think it will happen. Im chaining mine, i used to say 10 years now im thinking 5 or less.

    What do you think.

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

    Barring a SCOTUS ruling, 5-10. It is going to take a generational shift in areas that currently ban it to change. But it will happen. The youth of America will join those in the 18-29 voting blocs in the next 5-10 years to ensure it.

    On a federal level? Hopefully never.

    About one month to go. The SCOTUS is going to legalize gay marriage across this great nation. To do less is a clear violation of the rights guaranteed under our Constitution.

    If you mean that Government gets out of marriage entirely, changes marriage to a civil union of secular contract between two consenting adult parties (that it currently is but masquerades under the term marriage) and the state and lets NGOs handle the concept of "marriage" I'm totally there with you.

    Otherwise, I have to disagree.
