A report has been issued "Marriage and Same-Sex Couples after Obergefell" by the Williams Institute at UCLA Law School which demonstrates how well the kultukampf over "gay marriage" is going for the forces of equality. The graph at the top of this blog post demonstrates the exponential growth in the estimated number of same-sex couples in the United States, which is near the 500,000 mark, which means that nearly a million Americans have a legally married spouse of the same-sex.
The report notes that there has been a rapid change since the U.S. Supreme Court Obergefell decision legalized marriage equality nationwide in June, overturning provisions in the last remaining states that were still enforcing bans on same-sex marriage despite an unprecedented series of legal rejections by dozens of federal judges.
In fact, in the figure below one can see that the percentage of all new marriages that are what used to be called "gay marriages" has jumped from 6.4% before June 2015 to 11.2% afterJune 2015.
