A close friend just sent me the article Senate to mull conflicting gay-marriage measures. I had seen on the TV today that there was discussion, and that a senator was pushing for the acceptance of a bill to allow same-sex marriages in PA.

I know that there were fie states that had legalized same-sex marriage, but was surprised to read that there were 30 with a definition of marriage in their constitutions. An interesting quote from the article: "Leach said he was under no illusion that his bill would become law anytime soon. But he said he believed that in 15 years, same-sex marriage would be legal in all 50 states and people would look back on the controversy as they look back on bans on interracial marriage."

Do you think Pennsylvania's first bill to legalize same-sex marriage will be passed this first time around? What do you think about the belief that all 50 states will legalize same-sex marriages in the next 15 years?

I honestly can't see it happening the first time around. I really hope that I'm proved wrong, though =]
