Summary: Same-sex American couples who have tied the knot account for 11 percent of all summer weddings.
Since the U.S. Supreme Court legalized marriage equality nationwide in June, the 96,000 same-sex couples who have tied the knot account for 11 percent of all summer weddings, according to an analysis released by Gary J. Gates, Blachford-Cooper Distinguished Scholar and Research Director, and Taylor N.T. Brown, Policy Analyst, at the Williams Institute at UCLA School of Law.
The study, titled "Marriage and Same-sex Couples after Obergefell," analyzes new data from the Gallup Daily Tracking survey and the American Community Survey to show the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court decisions in Windsor v. United States in June 2013 and Obergefell v. Hodges in June 2015.
"These data make it clear that the majority of same-sex couples in the United States will soon be married," Gates said. "That means more American children can benefit from the stability and economic security that marriage can provide. It also means that it will be easier for more families to adopt some of the country's most vulnerable children and provide stable and loving homes."
Key findings from the report include:
"As Americans attend the weddings of their friends, family, and work colleagues, research shows that support for marriage equality will continue to grow," Gates said.
