Gay Couple Claim Rhode Island Does not Ban Same-Sex Marriages
A Massachusetts Superior Court judge heard arguments Tuesday that a gay couple should be allowed to marry in that state because Rhode Island law does not explicitly ban same-sex marriage. The couple were denied a marriage license in 2004, however, the Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled in March that a 1913 state law bars they from marrying in Massachusetts if they live in states where their marriage is banned. A majority of the justices said the statute would not bar a marriage if Massachusetts Rhode Island does not ban them. Source. Brian MacQuarrie, Boston Globe, boston.com.
