You may sign your name, but not on this. Same-sex couples in Michigan cannot legally apply for a marriage license, but the battle over the issue is far from over. Same-sex marriage is a hot topic all across America, and Michigan is taking part in the discussion. While organizations on both sides of the issue continue to fight for their views, support for same-sex marriage is increasing nationwide. In 1995, the United States Congress passed the Defense of Marriage Act, which legally prevents the federal government from recognizing same-sex marriages. It also defines marriage as “a legal union between one man and one woman as husband and wife.” Eight federal courts have struck down all or part of the law as un-Constitutional, and states are also legislating their own laws about whether to accept or deny equality of marriages.
