From Wikipedia...<quoted text>
Marriage is not a "right"- just like driving it is a PRIVILEGE.
If you require the permission of the government to do something it is not a "right".
I have the "RIGHT" to free speech, I do not need a government endorsement to speak freely.
Understand the difference?
The Bill of Rights lists specifically enumerated rights. The Supreme Court has extended fundamental rights by recognizing several fundamental rights not specifically enumerated in the Constitution, including but not limited to:
The right to interstate travel
The right to intrastate travel
The right to privacy (which includes within it a set of rights) including:
a. THE RIGHT TO MARRIAGE (emphasis added)
b. The right to procreation
c. The right for a woman to choose to have an abortion before fetal viability
d. The right to contraception (the right to use contraceptive devices)
e. The right of family relations (the right of related persons to live together)
Now, I'm not an attorney. I won't pretend to be one. But it's my understanding that "the right to marry" has been supported by 14 Supreme Court Cases.
I would say that your claim has been disproven!
