Within A Week, Alabama Could Become The 37th State To Legalize Marriage Equality

From next week, the marriage could be allowed to same-sex couples in Alabama, whether the Attorney General like it or not.

Indeed, following a challenge by a lesbian couple, Cari Searcy and Kim McKeand, who wants both recognition of their marriage, but also of their families, they are moms and one of them is officially recognized as mother for now, a federal judge has recently repealed the marriage equality ban in Alabama considering the ban as unconstitutional.

However, this decision was not stayed. Nevertheless, same-sex marriages were not immediately allowed and an order imposed a delay, an order which will expire on February 9.

So the attorney general gets into a panic a bit and urged the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals to put on hold the decision of the judge, at least until the U.S. Supreme Court makes a decision on the equal marriage, that is to say on June 2015.

If Alabama allows marriage equality next week, it will become the 37th state to legalize marriage for same-sex couples.
