Marriage Equality: On Way to the Supreme Court Again!!


RedSCOTUS

~~April 27, 2015~~ 

The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) will begin to hear oral arguments as they prepare to decide whether the U.S. Constitution allows for states to discriminate against same-sex couples by denying them the right to marry or refusing to recognize their marriages performed in jurisdictions where they are legal.

While the historic Supreme Court cases in 2013 (United States v. Windsor and Hollingsworth v. Perry) struck down Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act and brought marriage equality back to California, the current case before SCOTUS has the potential to allow for nationwide marriage equality. While over 80 marriage equality cases have worked their way through the judicial system across the country, now, finally, this decision by the highest court in the land could allow same-sex couples to enjoy the same marriage protections and basic rights as their different-sex counterparts.

Marriage equality will ensure that same-sex couples will be recognized on the state level for tax purposes, healthcare decision making, and inheritance determinations.  On the federal level these couples will also gain access to critical lifeline benefits like Social Security and Veterans spousal benefits — programs that have remained out of reach for couples living in states that do not recognize their marriage.

  1. I AM THE BEARER OF GOOD NEWS!!! I am 99.9% sure SCOTUS will rule in favor of same sex marriages for all 50 states. Judge Roberts Judge Roberts has associated with gay people in the past and so he emotionally leans in towards approving this.

    In the past, he did pro bono work on behalf of gay rights activists, helping colleagues in their preparation of court filings and oral argument in Romer v. Evans, 517 U.S. 620 (1996).

    While Judge Roberts was at Harvard, his pre-law advisor was William LaPiana, a New York Law School openly gay law professor.
