Some gay couples are making the most of a 2015 Supreme Court ruling that made same-sex marriage legal across the United States, but many LGBT adults are just happy to have their rights without needing to put a ring on it. After the Supreme Court ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that states could not ban same-sex marriages, 10.2 percent of lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender adults are now married to their same-sex spouse, according to a Gallup poll published this week.
Before the Supreme Court ruling, less than 8 percent of LGBT
couples were married to a same-sex partner. In 2016, about 9.6 percent
of LGBT adults said "I do" to their same-sex partner. LGBT Americans
over the age of 50 were most likely to be married.
