Is the US ready for Same Sex Marriage?

After witnessing several same sex weddings I believe it is a violation of civil rights if people are discriminated against if not allowed to marry a person of legal age regardless of what gender they were born to.
Cynthia, an American citizen, and Marina, an Irish citizen are both living in Ireland. They had to leave their home and come to Connecticut to be married in church since Ireland has approved civil unions but not marriage. Perhaps after the Supreme court rules it will impact world opinion about this basic human right.
Judge Ruth Ginsberg: “All of the incentives, all of the benefits that marriage affords would still be available…So you’re not taking away anything from heterosexual couples. They would have the very same incentive to marry, all the benefits that come with marriage that they do now.”
