Which is precisely why I'm in favor of, at the very least, amending our marriage laws to allow for any two individuals without consideration for their gender. The 14th, created via a constitutional process, established equal protection under the law. Currently, I believe there to be a clear unequal application of what can be done under the law as it pertains to gender. Thus far I've never had anyone give me an answer that sufficiently convinces me this unequal application substantially relates to serving an important state interest. As such, in my opinion, our current laws are unconstitutional.
