“Same Sex Marriage: Historicl Perspective of Who Decides? The Supreme Court or Individual States?”
States want to govern for themselves what the exact form their marriage laws should take. Historically, many states tend to interpret the laws too narrowly or create laws that are wholly biased.

States have profound discord surrounding the definition of marriage. Presented by EWU Women’s Studies Center.
