The poll's broken, but my answer is that it'll be universally available and generally uncontroversial, much like interracial marriage is now.

I think it will be available nationwide, and it will only be unacceptable to a few die-hard throwbacks, much like interracial marriage is today.

To save the world, heterosexual marriage will be forbidden and only Gay marriage will be acceptable.

Eventually, people will look in history books and be astonished that 2 completely different species were ever allowed to marry. Martians and Venusians.

Unless I'm wrong of course...










(it's just a guess based on zero fact content)

Eh. No worries. I think people will pretty naturally fall into poll-like categories on this issue.

Providing there is still a US in 2050 it's impossible to make even a sorta guess. Depends upon how far the pendulum swings or where in the swing we are at the time.

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.

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.

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.

2050? Serious? I give it 2-5 years. The Supreme Court has clearly indicated that they are prepared to strike down "straights only" marriage if presented with a case. That will be the definitive ruling that will end government discrimination in every state of this great Country. Even Scalia sees the writing on the wall.

Because all gays are born gay, just like all blacks are born black.
