The Wisconsin supreme court’s ruling on the state’s ban on same-sex marriage has been one of the most anticipated events in the last few months. This news was the result of a lot of work and an extensive legal process. It’s great to be talking about the future of marriage for the first time in over 20 years.
The ruling is really the culmination of the court’s desire to “protect the traditional definition of marriage” which includes the ability to get married. It is a step to allow people to “reconcile” the religious doctrine of marriage (whether it be a church or a government) with the government’s.
the court’s decision could have far-reaching effects. For example, the government could prevent same-sex marriages in states that haven’t yet legalized same-sex marriage, but have religious laws that include it.
This decision will allow the government to dictate whether a couple gets married, regardless of religious beliefs, and it could give government officials the ability to deny marriage on religious grounds; which could be a whole lot worse than it is now. Of course, same sex marriage has been legal in the US since the Supreme Court decision legalized it.
Same sex married couples in Wisconsin are allowed to do the same thing as married couples here. However, there is no word yet on how the court will rule on the marriage issue.
You won’t find any gay marriage on the Wisconsin Supreme Court website. However, the Wisconsin Marriage Law Center is trying to change that. The group is currently preparing a brief arguing the case that is expected to be argued before the state Supreme Court, and it argues that the state’s ban on same sex marriage is unconstitutional because this is a matter of personal liberty.
This would be a big win for same sex marriage, but I can’t help but think that the state supreme court might be one of the last bastions of gay marriage. I don’t see anything that would stop the state supreme court from ruling on the marriage issue.
I think another big win for gay marriage would be a lower court ruling that declares the state’s ban on same sex marriage unconstitutional. That would be a huge win.
The state supreme court has ruled that the ban is unconstitutional, but the judge has not yet issued his ruling. That means the issue is still being litigated in the court.
There is a good bit of speculation that the state supreme court will rule on the issue. If so, this will be a big win for gay marriage.
