Indiana Couples Launch A Challenge To Pass Marriage Equality And To See Out-Of-State LGBT Marriages Recognized

Written by

There are approximately 45 challenges in the United States and here is one more! Four gay couples launch a challenge in Indiana against the non-recognition of LGBT unions performed in other states. They also ask the state to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples.

We followed it during last month, the legislators of Indiana want to pass an act to ban marriage equality in Indiana's constitution. But, as the law was modified during a first session, it has to be approved again by the legislators before to appear on the ballot, and not the 2014 Ballot but the next one.

As a result, LGBT couples go on the offensive!

To stop this act, they will try to change the marriage law, which does not allow a recognition of the LGBT unions and which defines marriage as union between a man and a woman, by challenging it in a court.

The initiatives in the neighboring states worked. Bans of Texas and Kentucky were repealed by a court. Why not in Indiana?
