E-Marriage Update

Post to Twitter Post to Facebook

NPR’s December 14th Morning Edition featured Michigan State University College of Law profs Adam Candeub and Mae Kuykendall and their proposal for”e-marriage,”through which same-sex couples could obtain marriage licenses from states in which such unions are legal, and then have ceremonies at home. Interviewed for the program, Professor Candeub explained the proposal further.”What we’re arguing for is that states should formalize in their laws what they’ve always been doing in smaller degrees in specific areas, which is, allow people outside their states to use their laws.”He also points out that such a proposal could help out any couple trying to negotiate the difficulties of a long-distance marriage ceremony, such as those in the armed forces. Feminist Law Professors earlier posted the press release and a link to the E-Marriage Project here.
