Gay weddings: Will they be legal in June?

Dec 10, 2012 | Posted by: DNF | Full story: news.yahoo.com

The Supreme Court on Friday set in motion its constitutional machinery on the issue of same-sex marriage, probably producing a result in June, the most popular month for weddings. Friday thus marked a bold beginning, especially in the face of the reality that the court could have chosen to stay away from the issue altogether, but deliberately chose not to do so.

But the path from this beginning to the June outcome will be, for the justices, more like finding their way through a garden maze: the end at times will seem quite elusive. And, in this instance, the end might not be a clearly defined one: either that gay weddings will be made legal nationwide, or that states will remain free to ban them if that is their choice.

Between now and one of those clear results, there is a daunting series of turns. Too much can be made of that fact, though, and that would take away from the historic importance of what the court has begun. Aside from a fleeting look 40 years ago at a legally forlorn plea to allow a Minnesota gay couple to marry, the court until now had never seriously pondered the question.

Whatever the Justices rule with regards to both DOMA, Section 3 and Prop 8.......the rulings WON'T affect the validity or legality of the marriages that are already legal or will be legal before the ruling comes in June of 2013......just whether Same-Sex Couples will be allowed to marry in California or whether our legal marriages will have federal benefits and recognition!!!!

I know my wife and I are seriously hoping for a ruling that will be in our favor....but remain cautiously realistic that the worse could come!!!!

Scalia needs to recuse himself for the many prejudicial anti-gay statements he has made. If not, he should be impeached.

In the meantime we'll likely gain marriage equality in Illinois, Rhode Island, and Delaware by June.

That would put us at 12 states plus DC, which will only have a positive influence on the SCOTUS.

They're already legal, just not recognized by all states or the federal govt.

Hey R1.....NOT illegal, just not recognized!!!

Your numbers don't add up either because 2 states don't have bans or anything regarding the right to marry......and some states have some legal recognition with regards to Civil Unions and DP's.......only 31 actually have constitutional amendments not allowing Same-Sex Couples the right to marry and that will change as well!!!

Stupid Fa$$ot, I'm not R1 and I'm not wrong. If you believe that I am, look it up. I'm telling you that 9 states allow ssm where 41 do not. Out of the 41, 30 states have written bans against ssm in their state Constitution. Check the AP in Washington if you choose to. Doesn't matter to me. You Fa$$ots never recognize the truth anyway, not even if it's staring you in the face.
Whatever, but you are a troll and I'm telling you that your numbers aren't correct because both Wyoming and New Mexico have NO BANS on who can get married........that shoots your numbers and here ya go to show what states have what:

Disregard this jerk. He's still sore romney lost plus 3 states voted FOR gay marriage. His teeny, tiny, small world is crashing all around him. I imagine he's also into heavy masturbating which isn't helping at all... lots of warts, you know.

I agree.

I believe it is almost certain that gay people will once again be allowed to marry in Calie in June after the Supremes make their decsion known in teh Prop. 8 case. I expect that either they will say the petitioners have no standing and dismiss the case, thus allowing the fedeal appeals court decision to stand, or, if they do rule on the merits of the case, they will affirm the appeals court ruling. Either way, I think gay marriages will resume in Cali in June.

In the DOMA case, they may also rule that the petitioners, in this case, Congress, also has no standing. While the standing of congress in such a case may seem obvious, I do not believe there has ever been a case where congress has petitioned SCOTUS, because the Solicitor General has refused todefend teh constitutionality of a federal law.

Thus, like the Prop. 8 case, the DOMA case may also be dismised by SCOTUS based on congress having no standing. If they do hear the case, I am 98% certain that SCOTUS will rule DOMA unconstitutioonal.

If they do that, then it's a shame we can't impeach that bastard Bill Clinton again for signing it in the first place.

On the BRIGHT SIDE, we COULD impeach The Obamaniac !

Illegal in 41? There are tons of SSM couples in the states that ban them. No arrests or civil charges. It's not illegal to have a SSM anywhere in the country dolt.

You're not very bright are you?

Same sex marriage is not illegal in any of the states or territories
.
If it were illegal; ssm couples could be arrested and thrown in jail
.
as it stands; a cop won't even write them a ticket
.
The worst that can happen is for the mormon diaper daddies to wrestle you to the ground and lock you up with 'church owned' handcuffs; which is also not legal

The facts revolve themselves about this gay marriage aspect being a basic civil right amongst fellow Americans.

And if you're to look at the present it was less than 9 states in the past given this is a growing reality we should let gay marriage take place.

The truth must just FREAK you out Junior...LOL!!!!
