Gay Marriage In Michigan: Judge Strikes Down Ban, ‘Unconstitutional’

After two weeks of considering whether same-sex parented children were at a disadvantage compared to children of traditional couples, and after a decade long ban on same-sex marriages, a Detroit judge today determined that the ban is unconstitutional.

In 2004, Michigan voters decided marriage was only between a man and woman by a wide margin.

Bill Schuette, Attorney General, said he would file a request with a federal appeals court to prevent same-sex couples from marrying immediately, and since the announcement was made after 5pm on Friday, most county clerks offices, where marriage licenses are issued, were already closed.
