    All's good, we got the gist.

    I say gay marriages won't be a topic of controversy.

    Maybe bigots, homophobes, and racists will be cured by then.

    Despite the fact that the "pendulum swings" women are still allowed to vote 93 years after the passing of the 19th amendment. The general trend within this country is that once a specific demographic gains a right they don't just lose it again.

    I am waiting for challenges to begin on the Constitutional amendments passed in the past ten years to see what happens. My thought is that somewhere down the line, a number of amendments will be removed or struck down, but some states may hold on to them for a while. By 2050, I expect much of this to be largely forgotten.

    I'd be very surprised to see gay marriage not legal anywhere in the USA by 2050. Based on the current youth approval rating of gay marriage right now, I think even Mississippi and Utah would go for it by then.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    I'm putting $20 on Utah being the last holdout. I've known a lot of Mormons and their resistance to gay marriage regardless of age has been really quite extraordinary. I think those guys may mean business.

    I would put Idaho on that list also.

    By 2050 Demographic change will have made the USA a much different place.

    It will seem like a different country.

    And it will be.

    It will be legal all over the US and very uncontroversial, for the most part. There will likely be parts of the South and Midwest (and possibly some Mountain states) that will see disapproval, like we see now over interracial marriage, but most people, especially younger people, won't understand what the problem is.

    Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
