Michigan Gay Couples Denied Marriage Licenses

For the fourth year in a row, gay persons in Michigan applied for marriage licenses on Valentine’s Day. The 30 or so applications were denied. The denial was based on language found in Chapter 83 of Michigan laws, which is based on language found in Proposal 2, in which Michigan voters defined marriage as the “union of one man and one woman.” Proposal 2 was approved by Michigan voters in 2004.  Source:  L.L.
