Apparently a Judge just struck down the ban on Gay Marriage in the state of Nebraska, leaving only 12 states left in the US that havent legalized Gay Marriage.

So lets all bet on which will be the last state to legalize it. The winners MIGHT get a prize, or they might not, Im not sure how long it will take for the last state to give in.

There are 13 options you can bet on. 12 are individual states, and the last option is to bet that the Supreme Court or some other body of legislation will legalize Gay Marriage outright, meaning that no last state will be the final state to legalize Gay Marriage.

So go ahead and place your bets on which state you think will be the last to legalize Gay Marriage, those who end up picking the right answer may get a cash prize of some sort.

For the record, I don't think it is fair, as they are not equivalent in my mind, to say that a judge ruling is the same as legalizing it. One suggests the state wanted it, while the other suggests the state was forced into it.

So lets all bet on which will be the last state to legalize it. The winners MIGHT get a prize, or they might not, Im not sure how long it will take for the last state to give in.

There are 13 options you can bet on. 12 are individual states, and the last option is to bet that the Supreme Court or some other body of legislation will legalize Gay Marriage outright, meaning that no last state will be the final state to legalize Gay Marriage.

While Missouri themselves havent legalized the ability for gays to get married in their state, they DO recognize gay people who got married in other states, so Im okay with eliminating Missouri off the list since they are just one step away from legalizing it anyways.

They're betting that the Supreme Court or Congress will step in and legislate that Gay Marriage be legal in all US states, which would mean that no individual state gets to be the 'last' state to legalize gay marriage

Didn't bother reading the whole thread... No one I know would bet on Texas, when you have Georgia and Mississippi on that list.
