    That's not the case. It's called a marriage license. In other words, permission. When the marriage actually occurs, the license is signed either by the Court Clerk (courthouse wedding) and clergy (church wedding). Some states do discriminate with regards to who is allowed to marry. That is not the case with things like drinking laws.

    Drinking laws apply to all those under the agree of 21. Everyone, regardless of sex, or sexual orientation or race, etc.
    In the modern era, do you know anyone who applied for a marriage license (many states call it a certificate) and were denied that met the criteria? You know, not too young, not already married to someone else...etc.? The state could not/would not/had no authority to stop you from being married, or even registering your marriage, so long as the criteria were met.

EVERYONE had those restrictions, exactly the same. Many homosexuals married, they just married someone of the opposite sex.
    This kind of word game is what required the fixing.

Fair enough?

    They just can't marry each other.




    Yes?

    Yes?
    it's something that shouldn't have required any intervention after the Loving v. Virginia case, where the SC said that marriage is a fundamental right.
