    Gay people are allowed to marry in all 50 states. They just aren't allowed to apply for legal benefits related to taxes, visitation rights, and property rights. So this is a flawed poll.

    Until they are granted the ability to engage fully in their right to contract and obtain a marriage license, they are not allowed to marry in all 50 states.

    marriage - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary
    Note that it is not exclusively defined as a..."right to contract and obtain a marriage license"

    Allowed to enter into the legal contact effecting taxes and various things which is called marriage, no.

    Allowed to live together, go to a church which allows it, get married, call themselves married, yes.

    It is the legal aspect which I thought was the issue in most cases.

    If you're going to make a yes or no poll, you probably shouldn't add editorial comments to the choices making it obvious which way you want people to answer.
