Percent Of Americans Living Under Same-Sex Marriage Law Will Double If New York Passes Equality

Via Towleroad, the Williams Institute notes that extending marriage to same-sex couples in New York would impact 42,600 same-sex couples, 21 percent of whom (nearly 9,000) “are already legally married.” “If New York extends marriage to same-sex couples, the percentage of the U.S.’ population living in a state that allows same-sex couples to marry will more than double, from 5.1 percent to 11.4 percent.”
