Same-sex marriage has been legal in Massachusetts for almost ten years, plenty of time for the signs of societal doom to manifest if that were to be the outcome. So guess what Public Policy Polling has found in a recent survey of Massachusetts voters?
Gay marriage being legal in Massachusetts still doesn’t seem to be destroying too many people’s lives. 85% of voters in the state say it’s either had a positive or no impact on their lives, with only 15% saying it’s been a negative. Even among Republicans 66% say it hasn’t negatively affected them. Voters in the state support gay marriage being legal by a greater than 2:1 margin, 60/29.
So…all those very level-headed, reasonable predictions that marriage equality spelled the end of civilization, those were wrong? Who’d of thunk it?
