High Court to Rule on Same-Sex Marriage

High Court to Rule on Same-Sex Marriage



An update to the February issue of Fair Housing Coach: As expected, the Supreme Court has agreed to rule on same-sex marriage.

All across the country, there has been an abrupt shift in the laws on same-sex marriage. Last year at this time, same-sex marriage was permitted in only a minority of states, but it’s since shifted to the majority of states, including Florida, which this month became the 36th state to permit same-sex marriage. The Court is expected to take up the case this spring, and to make a ruling by the end of June.
