Same sex marriage laws are becoming more common these days as activists for equal rights are making greater progress. Politicians are saying the number of universal marriage laws are going to surpass the more numerous women’s pro-choice health laws.
It wasn’t until 2004 that same sex couples could get married anywhere in the United States. Today same sex marriage laws exist in Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York, Vermont and our nation’s capital is likely next with the state of Maryland.
The state of California started the movement, but opponents have fought the marriage equality laws through the ballot. However, over the last few years more than 18,000 marriages took place before Proposition 8 temporarily halted same sex marriages again.
In the United States, 29 states have passed laws approved by voters to prematurely block these laws from ever becoming part of their state’s constitution. Many people still believe in the concepts of marriage as one woman and one man.
So what can this do for you? If you live in one of these states and own a photo booth rental business or are thinking of getting into the photo booth industry, this group of untapped customers can jumpstart your business with a new niche to cater to.
