Unfortunately it is here because leaders of the major parties are opposed or at least their power bases generally lean that way - even though the majority of the population is in favour (or it the "I don't effin care who someone else wants to marry" camp)

Libertarian Party four-decade advocacy for marriage equality pays off with US Supreme Court decision

In a 5-4 ruling today, the US Supreme Court held that the Fourteenth Amendment requires states to license same-sex marriage and recognize those marriages entered into in other states.

Libertarian candidates, including the party’s 1976 presidential nominee, Roger MacBride, have been bravely calling for marriage equality since long before it was politically correct. In fact, they’ve been doing so when it was considered downright dangerous.

David Boaz, Vice President of the Cato Institute, noted in a column in The Advocate, “The Libertarian Party endorsed gay rights with its first platform in 1972 — the same year the Democratic nominee for vice president referred to 'queers' in a Chicago speech. In 1976 the Libertarian Party issued a pamphlet calling for an end to antigay laws and endorsing full marriage rights.”

“I'm glad to see that the Supreme Court has upheld the equal rights for all Americans that the Libertarian Party has been fighting for, for over forty years," said Nicholas Sarwark, Chair of the Libertarian National Committee.

“We applaud and celebrate this victory, and we will continue to fight for the rights of all Americans to pursue happiness and prosperity in any way they choose,” he said, “as long as they don't hurt others or take their stuff."

Five Right-Wing Predictions About Marriage Equality That Still Haven't Come True
Sunday marked the first anniversary of the Supreme Court’s landmark marriage equality decision, which, if Religious Right activists were to be believed, was to usher in a horrible tyranny that would lead to mass deaths and war. (...)

US judge strikes down Florida gay marriage ban

 

MIAMI (AP) — A federal judge on Thursday declared Florida's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional, joining judges across the country who have sided with gay couples wishing to tie the knot.

U.S. District Judge Robert L. Hinkle in Tallahassee ruled that the ban added to Florida's constitution by voters in 2008 violates the 14th Amendment's guarantees of equal protection and due process. Hinkle issued a stay delaying the effect of his order, meaning no marriage licenses will be immediately issued for gay couples. That also means gay couples legally married in other states will not immediately have their marriages recognized in Florida.

This is fascinating, as I am sure with most people that are not in the beltway, I had always just assumed that the Clintons have always supported gay marriage.  Couldn't be more wrong.{#Eek}

you know the only person that should have a say in your marriage is the other person you want to spend the rest of your life with (or get married to)

it's not anyone's business who you choose to live your life with

where in the world do bureaucrats get the idea or think they have a higher claim on your freedom of choice in anything (especially a life partner) than you do?

who made that idiotic rule up and why is it considered valid?

wtf?
ok rant off

from  Laws.com
"Marriage license requirements were introduced to control couples' legal ability to be married. In fact, marriage license laws were originally aimed at preventing non whites from entering in marriage and being granted the rights and responsibilities generally conferred upon marriage. Later, interracial couples were forbidden from obtaining a marriage license."
