• Should gay marriage be recognized in the United States?

    U.S. Supreme Court Justices will consider whether the Constitution protects a right to gay marriage, and if so, under what circumstances, in the context of California’s Proposition 8, which bans gay marriage. Justices will also be asked to consider whether the Defense of Marriage Act improperly denies federal benefits to same-sex couples who are married under a state law.

    What do you think? Should it be up to the states or should there be a federal law recognizing gay marriage?
