Levi: "Marriage Equality for Same-Sex Couples: Where We Are and Where We Are Going"

Jennifer Levi (Western New England Univ. School of Law) has posted "Marriage Equality for Same-Sex Couples: Where We Are and Where We Are Going" on SSRN. Here is the abstract:

The legal landscape for same-sex couples seeking to marry has shifted dramatically over the last five years. On October 10, 2008, the Connecticut Supreme Court became the third state high court to rule that its state constitution could not sustain a statutory framework that excludes same-sex couples from marrying, following the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court on November 18, 2003, and the California Supreme Court on May 15, 2008. Same-sex couples throughout the country have gotten married in Connecticut, Massachusetts, California, and in other countries throughout the world that provide full marriage equality, including in Canada. The Author discusses the developments in same-sex marriage in various jurisdictions.
