The History of Same-Sex Marriages in Vail

Same-sex couples started getting married in Colorado after the US Supreme Court decided to deny the review of a pro-marriage order from the 10th Circuit of Appeals. As the result of this ruling, all groups involved in the marriage issue agreed that all stays should be lifted and that the state’s ban on gay marriage was unconstitutional. This decision came on October 6th, 2014.

The Williams Institute analyzes data provided by the US Census. According to the 2010 US Census, there were 12,424 same-sex couples in Colorado and 10,806 of these couples were unmarried. Even Eagle County, where Vail is located, had 45 same-sex couples. If half of those couples were to marry, the city could expect over $250,000 in wedding-related spending. The entire state could see over $50 million in added revenue as the result of same-sex marriages.
