U.S. Rep. Ron Kind (D-WI) released the following statement regarding the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that Wisconsin's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional:

"This decision marks another step toward full equality for all Wisconsinites. I applaud the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals for ruling on the side of equal rights. Clearly, momentum is on the side of marriage equality.

The government shouldn't stand in the way of two people who want to make a lifetime commitment to one another."
