    Marriage as a fundamental right

    The United States Supreme Court has in at least 14 cases since 1888 ruled that marriage is a fundamental right. These cases are:[37]

    1. Maynard v. Hill, 125 U.S. 190
      (1888)
      Marriage is “the most important relation in life” and “the foundation of the family and society, without which there would be neither civilization nor progress.”
    2. Meyer v. Nebraska, 262 U.S. 390
      (1923)
      The right “to marry, establish a home and bring up children” is a central part of liberty protected by the Due Process Clause.
    3. Skinner v. Oklahoma ex rel. Williamson, 316 U.S. 535
      (1942)
      Marriage is “one of the basic civil rights of man” and “fundamental to the very existence and survival of the race.”
    4. Griswold v. Connecticut, 381 U.S. 479
      (1965)
      "We deal with a right of privacy older than the Bill of Rights—older than our political parties, older than our school system. Marriage is a coming together for better or for worse, hopefully enduring, and intimate to the degree of being sacred. It is an association that promotes a way of life, not causes; a harmony in living, not political faiths; a bilateral loyalty, not commercial or social projects. Yet it is an association for as noble a purpose as any involved in our prior decisions.”
    5. Loving v. Virginia, 388 U.S. 1
      (1967)
      “The freedom to marry has long been recognized as one of the vital personal rights essential to the orderly pursuit of happiness by free men.”
    6. Boddie v. Connecticut, 401 U.S. 371
      (1971)
      “[M]arriage involves interests of basic importance to our society” and is “a fundamental human relationship.”
    7. Cleveland Board of Education v. LaFleur, 414 U.S. 632
      (1974)
      “This Court has long recognized that freedom of personal choice in matters of marriage and family life is one of the liberties protected by the Due Process Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.”
    8. Moore v. City of East Cleveland, 431 U.S. 494
      (1977)
      “[W]hen the government intrudes on choices concerning family living arrangements, this Court must examine carefully the importance of the governmental interests advanced and the extent to which they are served by the challenged regulation.”
    9. Carey v. Population Services International, 431 U.S. 678
      (1977)
      “[I]t is clear that among the decisions that an individual may make without unjustified government interference are personal decisions relating to marriage, procreation, contraception, family relationships, and child rearing and education.”
    10. Zablocki v. Redhail, 434 U.S. 374
      (1978)
      “[T]he right to marry is of fundamental importance for all individuals.”
    11. Turner v. Safley, 482 U.S. 78
      (1987)
      “[T]he decision to marry is a fundamental right” and an “expression[ ] of emotional support and public commitment.”
    12. Planned Parenthood of Southeastern Pennsylvania v. Casey, 505 U.S. 833
      (1992)
      “These matters, involving the most intimate and personal choices a person may make in a lifetime, choices central to personal dignity and autonomy, are central to the liberty protected by the Fourteenth Amendment. At the heart of liberty is the right to define one’s own concept of existence, of meaning, of the universe, and of the mystery of human life.”
    13. M.L.B. v. S.L.J., 519 U.S. 102
      (1996)
      “Choices about marriage, family life, and the upbringing of children are among associational rights this Court has ranked as ‘of basic importance in our society,’ rights sheltered by the Fourteenth Amendment against the State’s unwarranted usurpation, disregard, or disrespect.”
    14. Lawrence v. Texas, 539 U.S. 558
      (2003)
      “[O]ur laws and tradition afford constitutional protection to personal decisions relating to marriage, procreation, contraception, family relationships, and education. ... Persons in a homosexual relationship may seek autonomy for these purposes, just as heterosexual person

    Re: Walkout of Anti-Gay Event

    "Marriage is one of the "basic civil rights of man," fundamental to our very existence and survival.... To deny this fundamental freedom on so unsupportable a basis as the racial classifications embodied in these statutes, classifications so directly subversive of the principle of equality at the heart of the Fourteenth Amendment, is surely to deprive all the State's citizens of liberty without due process of law. The Fourteenth Amendment requires that the freedom of choice to marry not be restricted by invidious racial discrimination. Under our Constitution, the freedom to marry, or not marry, a person of another race resides with the individual and cannot be infringed by the State."

    -Judge Warren.

    It is because of this and the other cases that is why gay marriage succeeds every time it is brought to court (including the pesky 14th amendment, of course).

    All attempts to hang marriage on another right, not a right to marry.

    That doesn't even make sense. Do you want to try that again?

    "Disgusting" is such a subjective term that many throughout the world, and even this forum, would genuinely and vigorously believe that your behavior should be quashed. If you don't like lifestyles you find disgusting, don't partake of them, but don't imagine yourself to be the keeper of all knowledge relating to what's disgusting and what's not.

    Disgusting is subjective, I only find the gay agenda disgusting if I'm forced to particpate, which I'm not. Your agenda, the agenda of pretending there are no rights associated with marriage, and then that those rights associated with marriage are not to be extended to all who are in loving relationsihips, is very disgusting.
