On March 26, 2013, the Supreme Court heard arguments about the current laws that deny same-sex couples the right to marry. Those in favor of marriage equality argue that marriage is a constitutional right for everyone. Those opposing this argue that marriage should only be between a man and a woman. Although the jury is still contemplating their decision, 70 percent of Americans under the age of 33 are in favor of marriage equality.
