At the end of the day …. “Marriage Momentum”!!

~~February 9, 2015~~ 

At the end of this day, after Alabama started performing their first same-sex marriages, it’s time to reflect and wonder if the time for national marriage equality has arrived. 

I so hope that this is the case.

In the United States, same-sex marriage is recognized by the federal government and has been legalized in 37 U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and 21 Native American tribal jurisdictions. More than 70% of the population live in jurisdictions where same-sex couples can legally marry.

In 35 of the states with legalized same-sex marriage, marriage is open to same-sex couples statewide; in three it is restricted. Missouri recognizes same-sex marriages from out-of-state and same-sex marriages licensed by the City of St. Louis under a state court order, though two other jurisdictions issue such licenses as well. In Kansas, marriage licenses are available to same-sex couples in most counties, but the state does not recognize their validity. In Alabama, at least two probate judges are not issuing licenses uniformly. In two additional states, same-sex marriages were previously legal between the time their bans were struck down and then stayed. Michigan recognizes the validity of more than 300 marriage licenses issued to same-sex couples and those marriages. Arkansas does not recognize the more than 500 marriage licenses issued to same-sex couples there.

The United States Supreme Court has agreed to decide whether individual states may constitutionally ban or refuse to recognize same-sex marriages.
