Same-Sex Marriages (SSM): Legal Issues
Alison M. Smith (au)
SSM is legal in 7 states. Other states allow civil unions or domestic partnerships, which grant all or part of state-level rights, benefits, and/or respon. of marriage. Some states have statutes limiting marriage to one man and one woman. These variations raise questions about the validity of such unions outside the contracted jurisdiction. The Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) prohibits fed. recognition of SSM and allows states to refuse to recognize such marriages performed in other states. Contents of this report: DOMA; Constitutional Challenges to DOMA in Fed. Courts; Interstate Recognition of Marriage; SSM Activity in the States; Congress. Activity; State Constitutional Amend. Limiting Marriage to a Man and a Woman. Illus. A print on demand report.
