“It’s an exciting ruling, and I’m hoping to get married in California with my partner. My heart tells me the ruling will be upheld, but my head tells me otherwise. George W. Bush ensured that the Supreme Court is very conservative. It’s possible that the court will rule against marriage equality, unfortunately.”

“The Supreme Court won’t go so far as to make marriage a national right for gays and lesbians. But it will let the ruling remain in California, as a compromise. They’ll try to appeal to everyone. Of course you can’t make everyone happy. But that’s how the Supreme Court will settle it.”

Benjamin Rapkin

“Yes, we’ve come this far. I believe the Supreme Court will make it national. The law is on the side of the gays and lesbians. Judges will reject the prejudice, and rule according to the law.”

“Yes, it has a good shot. The political climate of the country is very supportive of marriage equality. Middle America is seeing more examples of loving same-sex couples. It remains to be seen whether the Supreme Court will reflect the changing times. But I’m optimistic.”
