Will we have same-sex marriage in Texas by the end of the decade?
Leah Shafer — "I seriously doubt it. The voices of gay marriage opponents are so strong that they overshadow those working for change to our draconian marriage laws."
Siobhan Grantham — "Realistically I’d say no, but I think we can overturn the 2005 Prop 2 vote by the end of the decade and maybe even have civil unions."
Micah Banes — "In Tejas? By 2020? Man, no, I don’t think so. I think it will be Texas and like five other states without gay marriage in 2020, unless the feds get involved."
Jennifer Medina — "I don’t think so, sadly, not unless enough of the rest of the country steps up first. Of course we do have that new gay mayor in Houston!"
