Another state on utah's bandwagon to nationalise same sex marriage.
Unless I missed it, Utah was never mentioned in the news article.
@ toosmartforyouSince Utah asked and was granted a fast track to the
10th Circuit of the SCOTUS the case of Utah was heard after few months while the
similar case of OK was heard one week later after 10 in the process. How the
court rules in Utah may have an impact in the whole country. That is why
Hutterite is correct. All pending cases that have similarities with the Utah
case will put pressure in the SCOTUS to rule at the national level. All those
cases may be resolved rather quickly if not immediately after the ruling.Utah may be the catalytic force that makes SSM part of the accepted
civil standard across the nation.I find ironic that Utah may help to
establish nationwide something it opposes. However, what I think is more ironic
is after all is said and done Utah will find that SSM is helping to strength
families, children and helping a segment of the population to become a more
integral part of society and live more stable and joyous lives because of this
ruling.I really believe that the Lord works in mysterious ways.
"If there is going to be a change in the definition of marriage, I believe
it should again come from a vote of South Dakotans on the ballot ..."No it shouldn't. Rights are NOT up for a vote; which is why
they're called "rights".Marriage equality is coming, I
can't wait for the gnashing of conservative teeth to follow.
This case seems to be more about money than anything else .If we get married we
can beat the system and get more money.
My best to Jennie and Nancy in their marriage and their lawsuit. May both be
Best of luck ladies!
@deseret pete: "This case seems to be more about money than anything else
.If we get married we can beat the system and get more money."A
68 year old and a 72 year old who have been a couple for 27 years... Do you
think they shouldn't be concerned about each other? Shouldn't be
concerned about the estate they will leave, first one of them to the other, and
then to the family they have? They are tying to "beat the system'"
by doing the exact same estate planning as any other married couple... oh. Yeah.
They can't legally get married even though their relationship is headed for
a third decade. So part of their estate planning seems to include marriage, and
then a legal case that they may have to persue to the Supreme Court of the
United States and then a trip to their investment guy. They are a
couple. They would like the same rights, benefits and protections of other
couples. It is about equality, not scamming the system.
These two women are heroes for the stand they are taking. They have the courage
to stand up to bigotry and hate. They look like a very loving couple. Be nice
to have them as neighbors.
