Supreme Court to Decide If Same-Sex Marriage Is a Constitutional Right


This is big: the Supreme Court will finally rule on whether same-sex marriage is a right under the Constitution.

SCOTUS will review an appellate court ruling that upheld gay marriage bans in Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio and Tennessee. According to the SCOTUS Blog, the court said it will consider whether states have the power to enforce such bans, and whether they can refuse to recognize gay marriages performed out of state. The argument is expected to happen in April, with a ruling by June. Just in time for wedding season, we’re just sayin’ .
