So your wrong then. Clears that up.


Are you clueless? It is yet to happen, and particularly so that when it is seen, you and others don't have the excuse that it was said after the fact, which is a complaint you and others have against similar critiques of current things going on in the world.

But of course, then you can always use an excuse to say "Uh, duh, but everyone knew that the states would all legalize it, this is America, hyuck hyuck hyuck, you were just stating the obvious :d"

Instead, you are being told ahead of time, while it is not obvious, and while it is still an ongoing debate, Capiche?


There is absolutely no indication that there will ever be a countrywide law legalizing gay marriage anytime soon, if ever. Even if someone were crazy enough to suggest it, it would never get enough votes in the house or the Senate, and the States would throw both a literal and a figurative hissy fit. Many states are currently passing laws simply to make legalizing gay marriage harder for anyone that might want to do it in the future. Anybody that thinks a statewide law legalizing gay marriage is a realistic possibility in the near futures lives in a fantasy land.

Alright, but I'm sticking to it, remember where you heard it, if something out of the supposed ordinary takes place.

Yes, there are indeed realty deniers on here.


Why don't people here like the real estate industry? (sorry, I couldn't resist).

Please don't mix two literary works together, it's offensive to their respective authors.

Ok, and just a note to make it easy, for those who are keeping track, here is the current list, as of Feb 1st 2013:

Connecticut
Iowa
Massachusetts
Maryland
Maine
New Hampshire
New York
Vermont
Washington

And District of Columbia is a given. So that's 9 states so far, 41 to go.

First off, there are 20 states that have constitutional amendments that straight up BAN same-sex marriage and civil unions. Two states, Virginia and Michigan, allow no contract whatsoever.

Second off, even if, by some miracle, every state decided to allow gay marriage, that wouldn't be the same thing as a 'countrywide law'. Do you understand the difference between federal laws and state laws?

Could care less = you care at least somewhat. Couldn't care less = you don't care at all.

Sigh, get the quote from PBS, please ->

"In 2013, the Supreme Court will consider two new cases that may decide the future of gay marriage. The court has never before heard a case regarding same-sex marriage, and its decision could possibly overturn state and federal law."

“The court could decide that Proposition 8 does violate the federal Constitution. That would be the broadest ruling that it could make,” said Marcia Coyle of the National Law Journal. “If the court said that the 14th Amendment does prohibit California from defining marriage as between a man and a woman, then other state [bans on same-sex marriage] would certainly be at risk, other than just California.”

And legalities of this matter, should they fail the first time, often have a round 2, or 3 or surplus. Which is seen in disputes up to this day in Roe vs. Wade, whether they are successful or not.

Even if Prop 8 is deemed unconstitutional - and that's a big IF - there's still a long line between that and the ENTIRE country having legalized gay marriage.
