Earlier this summer, traditional marriage suffered a defeat as a state marriage law and marriage amendment were overturned in Indiana and Wisconsin, respectively. Today, both states are presenting their arguments in an appeal to the 7th Circuit Court.

In June, federal judges struck down marriage laws in both states. Two stays were issued within days of the rulings, which left hundreds of same-sex couples in legal limbo. Over 500 of those couples were in Wisconsin. Indiana Gov. Mike Pence said his administration would recognize only one same-sex “marriage” license issued between the ruling and the stay, though it is estimated that hundreds participated in the process.

The Court has not indicated when it would release a ruling. The hearing comes as the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals considers marriage laws in Ohio, Tennessee, Michigan, and Kentucky, and shortly after the first judge since the Supreme Court's 2013 Windsor decision found a law favoring marriage to be constitutional.

It is anticipated that the Supreme Court will decide on the constitutionality of same-sex “marriage” bans, and related laws, at the state level, in its 2014/2015 session.
