Judge Recognized Three Same-Sex Marriages In Tennessee But Governor Bill Haslam Will Appeal The Decision

Written by 

Tennessee

 

 

In spite of the prohibition of marriage equality in Tennessee, a federal judge granted a recognition of three same-sex marriages performed apart from the state but Governor Bill Haslam said that he would appeal against this decision. 

Although this decision relates to only these three couples and in spite of the appeal, Judge Aleta Trauger sent a positive sign to the LGBTQ community of Tennessee.

The marriage equality ban had been approved in 1998 and then an act also prohibited it in the state's constitution in 2006.
