In May, when we last updated our numbers on the fight for marriage equality, there were just two states left with unchallenged bans on same-sex marriage.
Today that number is zero – every state now either has marriage equality (19 and DC) or a legal challenge in progress (the other 31).
First we heard from South Dakota on May 22, where Rosenbrahn v. Daugaard has been filed on behalf of six couples.
With the filing of this lawsuit, South Dakota will join the many other states in the nation who are engaged in a historic and very important discussion about it what means to treat each other equally under the law.
Two weeks later, on June 6, Newville was back in court putting the last state on the board by filing Ramsay v. Dalrymple on behalf of seven North Dakota couples.
We are simply looking for the same recognition that every other couple has, every other loving couple.
