Responses to Legalization of Same-Sex Marriage Vary Greatly

It may have happened over two weeks ago, but the Supreme Court ruling to legalize same-sex marriage in all 50 states is still creating quite the uproar. News headlines paint a picture that shows just how monumental this decision was and makes it clear that the dust is far from settled.

California has managed to stay out of the limelight thus far, perhaps due to the fact that same-sex marriage was legalized seven years ago. Other states that had banned same-sex marriage up until June 26, including Texas, Ohio, and Missouri, are still grappling with the ramifications of the ruling.

A county clerk in Texas resigned out of an unwillingness to issue marriage licenses. A presiding commissioner in Missouri is calling for a year of mourning over the Supreme Court's decision. An evangelical college in Ohio directly prohibits same-sex dating, even after the legalization decision. All instances are direct responses to the ruling made on June 26.

What Does All This Mean for Same-Sex Couples?

While it would have been nice if everyone could just get along after the Supreme Court made their decision, it seems that this is just a pipedream, at least for now. Same-sex couples should prepare for pushback and controversy, even in California.

Any amount of antagonism can make it difficult to pursue same-sex marriage, or divorce for that matter. Not everyone may be on board with the Supreme Court's ruling, but if you are in a same-sex relationship, your rights are no less important.

To ensure that you receive the full recognition of your marriage, or to minimize complications as you file for divorce, it is important to seek the assistance of a Culver City divorce attorney. We are proud supporters of same-sex couples and are prepared to do whatever it takes to uphold your rights.
