From the Paper:

"The concept of same sex marriage first became popular in the 1970s as gay and lesbian couples began to consider permanent unions reflecting traditional marriages between men and women. This concept grew to national importance in the 1990s as opposing factions within the political framework of the country began to voice their adamant disregard for same sex couples that, in their opinion, were disrespecting the traditional institution of marriage in the United States. To date, seven states have provided benefits for same sex couples that have participated in civil unions, (Vermont, New Jersey, Connecticut, California, Maine, Hawaii, the District of Columbia, and New Jersey). However, only Massachusetts has performed binding traditional marriage ceremonies between same sex couples. With the passage of time the proponents on both sides of the issue have directed reference of the issue to the constitution, religion, and tradition in America."
