Since how long has marriage equality been an issue?

Bradon Answered:

Marriage equality as a political issue has been around since the early 1970s, when the U.S. Supreme Court dismissed a case from Minnesota, where a same-sex couple was denied a license to wed. Since then there have been many cases brought against many different levels of government, most of which insisted upon equal treatment under the law. There have also been numerous referenda and ballot measures to try to establish laws banning marriage equality. Over time, however, public perception and social norms have changed to include a better understanding of homosexuality and the reasons why marriage is important to everyone.

Marriage equality has been an issue in America for centuries. Initally, marriage was only allowed within one's racial group. Once the racial aspect was overturned, same-sex couples fought for the right to marry.

Borntobe Answered:

Same-sex couples as well as inter-racial couples were strictly forbidden for centuries. Only recently things started to change. Now it is normal to see all kinds of couples and it´s hard to imagine that only some centuries ago things have been totally different.
