Marriage: (re) defined

Many courts resort to the dictionary when trying to decide the "common meaning" of a word, including a word such as "marriage."

According to the online Merriam-Webster Dictionary here:


Picture 1

Note definition 1a(2): the state of being united to a person of the same sex in a relationship like that of a traditional marriage <same-sex marriage>.

There is apparently some controversy, reported over at  Pam's House Blend.
