I’m starting to think that they’re right. This is the FedGov stepping on a state’s right to define its own institutions.
I don’t want Washington telling Wisconsin it has to issue a certain number of gun licenses, New York that it must allow no-fault divorce or Missouri that front license plates must be mandatory.
It does raise the issue of how states will handle the marriages they don’t recognize when people move. I’m wondering how this was handled back in the 1950s and 1960s with interracial marriages? I ask not to equate them but because that’s the most recent time I can think of for different recognition of marriages across state lines.
States would usually extend full faith and credit to a marriage contract executed in another state even if that marriage would be illegal in their own.
Jerry Lee Lewis comes to mind. People were outraged but she met age of consent laws in the jurisdiction were the marriage took place even if they didn’t meet the minimum age in other states or countries.
problem is that it sounds great util they go to other states and say they;r emarried and want a divorce
how about this, Yes I know it;s common sense but how about leaving marriage as it has been for thousands of years.
Weird hey how common sense can prevail but alas we have to have idiots make this a complex issue when it is not.
Keep marriage as it is and the bumper sticker slogans of no Govt doens;t wash either as that is a cop out but it sure sonds good like all bumper sticker slogans
The homosexual marriage was a communist agenda way back and now we get iditos on our side saying lets reach out to a communist agenda
