Michigan Gay Marriage Ban Overturned by SCOTUS

History is being made today with the release of the Supreme Court of the United State’s Opinion on same sex marriage. It is outlined in the 100+ pages of the Obergefell et al. v Hodges Opinion (see link to full opinion here: http://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/14pdf/14-556_3204.pdf).

For Michigan, this means that the State’s ban against same sex marriage is now overturned.  The 14th Amendment of the United States Constitution requires a State to license a marriage between two people of the same sex and to recognize a marriage between two people of the same sex when their marriage was lawfully licensed and performed out-of-State.
