    Henry v. Himes
    District court proceedings

    On February 10, 2014, in Henry v. Wymyslo, four same-sex couples legally married in other states sued in U.S District Court Southern District of Ohio seeking to force the state to list both parents on their children's birth certificates. The judge assigned to the case, Judge Timothy Black, is the same assigned to Obergefell. Three of the couples were women living in Ohio, each anticipating the birth of a child later in 2014. The fourth was a male couple living in New York with their adopted son who was born in Ohio in 2013.[17]

    While this lawsuit was pending, the plaintiffs amended their complaint to ask the court to declare Ohio's ban on same-sex marriage unconstitutional. Judge Black gave the state time to prepare its appeal of his decision by announcing on April 4 that he would issue an order on April 14 requiring Ohio to recognize same-sex marriages from other jurisdictions.[18][19] Following the resignation of the lead defendant, Ohio's director of health, Ted Wymyslo, for reasons unrelated to the case, Lance Himes became interim director and the case was restyled Henry v. Himes.[20] On April 14, Black ruled that Ohio must recognize same-sex marriages from other jurisdictions,[21] and on April 16 stayed enforcement of his ruling except for the birth certificates sought by the plaintiffs.[22]
    Court of Appeals proceedings

    After the state attorney general filed the necessary paperwork on May 9, 2014, Henry is currently on appeal in the Sixth Circuit, which heard oral arguments on August 6.
    Cowger v. United States

    On February 18, 2014, two men married in Chautauqua, New York, in 2012, and fathers of an adopted daughter since 2006, filed suit against the Federal and Ohio State governments in U.S. district court. They sought family healthcare coverage under the Affordable Care Act.[23] On March 28, the plaintiff couple voluntarily dismissed their lawsuit after obtaining a family policy. Their attorney commented that the lawsuit may have helped to clear up the confusion they had encountered with the insurance marketplace.[24]
    Initiative to repeal constitutional ban

    FreedomOhio and Equality Ohio are seeking state officials' approval of a ballot initiative that would replace the constitutional amendment and allow same-sex marriage.[25][26] Two prominent Republicans, Senator Rob Portman and former Attorney General Jim Petro, support repealing the same-sex marriage ban.[27]
    I think your little haven from gay marriage is living on borrowed time.

    Maybe, but I wouldn't make plans to come here to marry your boyfriend if I were you.
    You can't reason anyone out of a position they didn't reason themselves into in the first place.

    If I did have a boyfriend, I'd put twenty dollars on being able to marry him in Ohio within a year. And that's a conservative estimate.

    wow you dont even know your own state LMAO further exposing how severely, topically uneducated you are on this subject

    well Ill tell you cardnial, and those that live there might want to pay attention lol

    Two RULINGS in federal lawsuits have declared that Ohio must respect out-of-state marriages.
    A separate lawsuit has been filed in state court seeking the freedom to marry.

    Ohio is also under the appeal to the 6th circuit court and when that decision comes down it will be ANOTHER state with equal rights

    I hope my state has the distinction of being the last to succumb to liberal social engineering.
    Yea, great honor in clinging on to bigotry.

    You can come out now, it's probably safe. You'll still have to find a guy willing to marry you.

    You are deluding yourself. Bigotry is not a majority anywhere, just an unpleasant relic of ignorance.

    I'm surprised he hasn't come out yet, either. It's like he's embarrassed about it or something.
