Title: Same-Sex Marriage Resolution

Vote Smart's Synopsis:

Vote to pass a joint resolution proposing a constitutional amendment providing that marriage in the U.S. consists only of the union of a man and a woman, and federal and state constitutions can not be construed to require marriage or legal incidents of marriage be conferred in other unions.

Highlights:

  • Prohibits individual states from recognizing marital status and/or legal benefits from any other unions other than that of a man and a woman.

NOTE: AN AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION REQUIRES TWO-THIRDS APPROVAL IN EACH CHAMBER OF CONGRESS, AND RATIFICATION BY THREE-FOURTHS OF THE STATE LEGISLATURES WITHIN SEVEN YEARS OF THE DATE THE AMENDMENT WAS SUBMITTED.
