(MARRIAGE NEWS SPECIAL) Supreme Court Victory: What You Need to Know!

Here's why the Supreme Court had to uphold the freedom to marry, and what comes next.

The marriage equality ruling is as big a victory as we could possibly have hoped for. Now's a good time for everyone to celebrate -- the ruling is a win-win for everyone. It's not like some couples won and other couples lost. What this decision means is that same-sex couples have the same right to marry as everyone else, and every else's right to marry isn't harmed at all. Everybody wins.

(MNW) The Craziest Parts of NOM's Marriage Pledge!

We're down to the last few days before the Supreme Court rules on marriage. In the mean time, the National Organization for Marriage is asking all of the GOP presidential candidates to sign an anti-equality pledge. Let's take a look at just how crazy this pledge gets.

(MNW) Anti-Gay Supreme Court Briefs Are a Huge Mess!

I've rounded up the weirdest Supreme Court briefs that argue in favor of preventing gays and lesbians from marrying. Some are full of mistakes, others have baffling arguments. And at least one is incredibly sexist, and signed by a member of Congress.

(MNW) More Sneaky Anti-Gay Laws Popping Up!

It's been a huge week for marriage equality. Florida became the 36th state with the freedom to marry, judges in three southern states heard oral arguments, and the Supreme Court considered cases from five states. Plus a lawmaker in Texas is wasting everyone's time with a new anti-gay law that would make life difficult for everyone.

(MNW) Which States Still Don't Have Marriage Yet?

More victories this week. Marriage has started in Kansas, and a judge has overturned a ban in South Carolina but you still can't get married there yet. The lawyer who got DOMA overturned is now taking on Mississippi's marriage ban. And a few states are taking a closer look at overturning marriage bans at the ballot or in the legislature, just in case the Supreme Court doesn't come through for us.

(MNW) NOM's Pointless Pre-Election Cash Dump!

Last week, MK welcomed Matt to his new Homebase in Seattle!

The future of Florida's marriage ban is hanging in the balance, with a big ruling that could allow marriage to start any day now. Anti-gay groups are still spending tons of money in multiple states, but they're not getting much out of it. And there's an election this week could determine the future of marriage in multiple southwestern states.

(MNW) Who Has Marriage, Who Doesn't, & What's Next?

Over the last week, states have been winning the freedom to marry at such a fast pace that it's hard to keep up. AFER has conclusively won its marriage case. Cases in four other states have ended in victory. The Ninth Circuit has expanded marriage in several more states. It's been a pretty terrible week for the National Organization for Marriage. But a pretty great one for freedom, liberty, and equality.

(MNW) NOM's Latest Failure!

The National Organization for Marriage is scrambling to defend Oregon's marriage ban at the last minute, but things aren't exactly going how they'd hoped. The case to overturn Virginia's marriage ban gets a boost from one of the authors of the state's constitution. And the Governor of Pennsylvania wants to skip a trial on marriage and go straight to a ruling.

Just a few more hurdles remain for marriage equality in New Jersey. Organizers in North Carolina have finally found a clerk willing to challenge the state's ban on marriage.

w/ Matt Baume

We're just one week away from the start of marriage in New Jersey, but there's still a chance it could be delayed at the last minute. We have a date for the next step in a Pennsylvania lawsuit. And Illinois lawmakers could consider a marriage bill as early as next week.

(Marriage News Watch) New Federal Rules for Recognizing Marriages!

w/ Matt Baume

Marriage may return to Pennsylvania, despite a ruling two weeks ago that put licenses on hold. Organizers in North Carolina are mounting a challenge to the state's marriage ban, but first they need to find a clerk willing to challenge the law. Plus new guidance from the Labor Department means benefit plans must recognize marriages in every single state.

(Marriage News Watch) Marriage Lawsuits Keep Piling Up!

W/ Matt Baume

The lawsuits are piling up in Pennsylvania, where a judge has put marriages on an indefinite hold. It'll be at least a month and a half before the New Mexico Supreme Court will decide whether the state can issue marriage licenses. And the New Mexico clerk who first issued licenses has started a fundraising campaign -- he now needs tens of thousands of dollars to defend against an anti-gay lawsuit.

(Marriage News Watch) New Mexico Sets Date for Marriage Hearing!

Marriage continues to expand one county at a time in New Mexico, and one couple at a time in Ohio. But a state Supreme Court ruling may soon change all that.
