Same-sex couples wait in line to get married at the Salt Lake County Clerk's office.

  Governor Gary Herbert has made clear his opinion that marriage should only be between a man and a woman. His official actions have reflected that opinion in the weeks since a federal judge struck down Utah’s Amendment 3. Thursday the governor joins us to discuss the state’s stance on same-sex marriage. We’ll also talk with a panel of guests about the growing evidence that public opinion regarding same-sex marriage is changing, both nationally and here in Utah. We want to hear from you: Has your opinion of same-sex marriage changed in the last decade? And if so, why?
