    Equal rights/Same Sex Marriage how long until its a national reality?[W:178]

    Yes Ive asked a very similar question about 7 months ago in April or May and before that, about 24 months ago.

    BUT in the last 7 months NINE states have granted equal rights to gays and allowed them to legally marry and DOMA fell.

    In the last 24 months TWELVE states have granted equal rights to gays and allowed them to legally marry. DOMA falling was such a victory and stepping stone for equal rights just like i said it would be.

    Anyway here is the run down

    Updates in red: 11/30/2013 V3.0

    18 states and DC have equal rights:

    Massachusetts - May 17, 2004
    Connecticut - November 12, 2008
    Iowa - April 27, 2009
    Vermont - September 1, 2009
    New Hampshire - January 1, 2010
    Washing D.C. - March 9, 2010
    FALL OF DADT Dec 18, 2010
    New York - July 24, 2011
    Washington - December 6, 2012
    Maine - December 29, 2012
    Maryland - January 1, 2013
    FALL OF DOMA - June 26, 2013
    California - June 28, 2013
    Delaware - July 1, 2013
    Rhode Island - August 1, 2013
    Minnesota - August 1, 2013
    New Jersey - October 21, 2013
    Hawaii - December 2, 2013
    New Mexico – December 19, 2013
    Utah – December 20. 2013

    Illinois - June 1, 2014 effective

    14 more are in various stages of fighting or establishing a fight for equal rights

    Court Case(s) in the works to establish equal rights:
    Arkansas
    Kentucky
    Michigan (Feb 2014 Trial)
    North Carolina
    Oklahoma
    Pennsylvania (June 14 Trial)
    South Carolina
    Texas (Jan 2014 Trial)

    Court Case(s) and Legislation in the works, which ever wins first:
    Arizona
    Nevada
    Ohio (December 2013 trial) Trail had narrow ruling that ohio will recognize OTHER state marriages but didn’t impact bans. New cases expected.

    Legislation in the works:
    Colorado
    Florida
    Oregon

    thats 32 states that could have equal rights by 2015 and some much sooner![/QUOTE]

    so im very curious what people think now and if they changed their guesses.

    SO now after all this, Equal rights/Same Sex Marriage, how long until its a national reality?

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

    after some voting comes in ill try to search for the other two similar polls and compare numbers.

    also just for so more info when equal/civil/human rights was protected for interracial marriage about 80+% of the country was against it

    the number keeps moving but about polls in the last 5 months post numbers ranging from 52-58% support equal rights for gays

    5-10 years because i think its going to take a little than 5 years before the federal government has the right supreme court case to recognize these rights. It certainly won't happen through legislation.

    I agree every state will not legislate it within 5 years nor will every state get a SSC case in that time to grant it. But I do think SCOTUS will rule on this in the next 5 years and make it national just like it did with the equal/civil/human rights of interracial marriage

    The # of states doesn't matter except for how aggressive the remaining states are at appealing "activist judges." With the fast appeal promised out in utah, i would expect scotus to take the case up in 2015, after bans have been struck down in a few-several more states.

    I would love if a crybaby governor like herbert were to appeal, and SSM becomes legal nationally as a result. Then he can be the villain in the other 30 states.
