Approval for same-sex marriage is at an all-time high, mostly thanks to all those young people. According to the Pew Research Center, a whopping 70 percent of millennials (those born after 1981) support same-sex marriage. Only 38 percent of baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) are in favor of marriage equality. As millennials become a larger portion of the adult population, they are becoming a significant player in national opinion. The number of young people in support of same-sex marriage grew an unprecedented 19 percent since 2009, and subsequently, the percentage of American adults in support jumped as well, becoming the majority for the first time in 2011.
