Gay Marriages Performed Last Year Will Be Recognized in MI

Gay marriages that were performed last year in Michigan will be valid. Governor Snyder made the announcement, yesterday, that he won't appeal a ruling made by the state that they must be recognized. This means that over 300 same-sex married couples will now receive state benefits. Last March, a federal judge put a stop to the ban in Michigan, which allowed couples to receive a marriage license. However, Attorney General Bill Schuette filed an emergency appeal and the ban was reinstated. The U.S. Supreme Court is expected to hear challenges against gay marriage bans in Michigan and other states in the next coming months.
