Supreme Court Round Up Part One: Obergefell v. Hodges

Supreme Court Round Up Part One: Obergefell v. Hodges

“One can imagine Thurgood Marshall writing today on the subject of same sex marriage. He would likely point out that if the objective of marriage is to create stable relationships and self-sufficient families, then it makes no sense to deny equal access to marriage to same sex adults who are not related and who are willing to commit themselves to a union. Where the individual interest in pursuing our own intimate relationships is high, the state needs a good reason when it places limits on the expression of that interest for some of the population but not for all of the population, Justice Marshall might say.
What Justice Marshall imagined, the Obergefell majority seems to have called into existence.”
