"I was wrong about same-sex marriage."

David Frum is a CNN contributor, was special assistant to President George W. Bush, and has authored six books. He also has recently come out in support of marriage equality in a CNN article published yesterday.


Why? He said
The short answer is that the case against same-sex marriage has been tested against reality. The case has not passed its test. Since 1997, same-sex marriage has evolved from talk to fact. 
If people like me had been right, we should have seen the American family become radically more unstable over the subsequent decade and a half.
Recent polls have consistently shown that a majority of Americans support marriage equality.
He notes that while "American family stability" has continued to deteriorate, it has done so at a much slower rate than it did in the 1970s and 1980s before same-sex marriage was an issue.


He said:
By the numbers, in fact, the 2000s were the least bad decade for American family stability since the fabled 1950s. And when you take a closer look at the American family, the facts have become even tougher for the anti-gay marriage position. 
Middle-class families have become somewhat more stable than they used to be. For example: College-educated women who got married in the 1990s were much less likely to get divorced than equally educated women who got married in the 1970s.


I'm extremely pleased with how conservatives are reacting to marriage equality in New York. It seems as if people are now being placed in the spotlight for not only speaking out against marriage equality but also for not speaking out FOR marriage equality.


At this pace, I honestly think we'll see same-sex marriages performed in most (if not all) of the United States of America by 2020.
