The Marriage of Morgan and Davidson
- by admin
A marriage of Moragan and Davidson is on the cards after a landmark court case that has shaken the nation.
The justices of the US Supreme Court ruled in June that same-sex couples in California can marry.
Marriage equality advocates hailed the decision as the beginning of a new era.
But they also expressed doubts about the validity of California’s law.
Why the court struck down California’s marriage equality ban is still a matter of debate.
As it stands, same-day marriages have been legal in California since 2006, but same-gender couples have been allowed to marry under different rules.
California’s law bans same- gender couples from marrying outside of their home state and bans same sex couples from being granted a civil partnership in their home county.
So if a couple can get married in another state, they are effectively barred from doing so in California.
Same-sex marriage supporters say the court’s ruling is a huge step towards equality in the US.
“Today is a big day for marriage equality,” said Jeff Mason, executive director of the National Organization for Marriage, which is a US-based gay rights group.
Mason also argued that California’s gay marriage ban was unconstitutional.
It was passed on a partisan basis,” he said.
What you need to know about marriage equality in Australia, NZ and beyond:What is marriage equality?
Marriage is the union of one man and one woman, which was first defined in England around 800 years ago.
It is a legally recognised union between one man, one woman and their children, and is recognised across all 50 states.
In Australia, it is the only legal union recognised by the Commonwealth, and the government recognises same- sex couples as married people.
In New Zealand, marriage is the legal union between a man and a woman.
In Australia and New Zealand it is also recognised by courts, hospitals, churches, and some state governments.
In the US, it’s recognised by both states and the federal government.
In England, the law is a mixture of the laws of 16th century England and the 17th century, which meant that it wasn’t always clear what marriages were or who could legally marry.
The Civil Partnership Act was passed in 1967, and in the first two years of its existence, it was used only in a small number of cases, such as when a person was married in a private ceremony.
In 1972, the Marriage Act made marriage equality a civil right, which made it possible for couples to get married.
It then became a constitutional right in the United States.
The US Supreme court has struck down the law as unconstitutional, but it will still allow civil unions to continue in some states, like California.
What is the state of the marriage equality debate?
The marriage equality movement has grown rapidly in the last decade.
More than 30 states now have gay marriage laws in place, and more than 40 others have passed laws allowing gay marriage.
States with gay marriage bans have seen huge support from their communities.
There have been protests in New York and in many other states.
The number of same-date weddings in New Zealand is also on the rise, with the number of weddings in the country increasing by more than 50 per cent in the past five years.
One of the biggest changes in the marriage law is that gay couples now get to apply to the civil partnership state to get the marriage.
This has led to an increase in the number and number of civil partnerships.
How do same- or opposite-sex marriages get recognised in Australia?
The US is the first country to recognise gay marriage in the UK, with a decision by the Supreme Court in 2014.
In Canada, same sex marriage was legally recognised in New Brunswick in October 2015.
In Hawaii, same day weddings are now legal.
In Washington, DC, same time weddings are legal.
What happens next?
Same-day weddings have been legally recognised for a number of years in the USA, but marriage equality advocates have expressed concerns about how this could play out in Australia.
Some legal experts have also said that same marriage is likely to be challenged in the courts.
What do the experts say?
Davidson and Morgan argued that the US courts were wrong to reject the same- day marriage ban, arguing that it was based on discrimination.
Their arguments have also been backed by a number legal experts, including Professor James Corbett, who was a solicitor to the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
The issue of same time marriages has been a hotly debated issue in Australia for a long time.
Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has been trying to get same- date marriages recognised by his state parliament.
He recently launched a national postal survey campaign that asked voters whether they support same- and opposite-time weddings.
This survey was widely criticised by the Australian Human Rights Commission (AHCRC), which accused the Abbott government of ignoring the rights of
