BISMARCK, NORTH DAKOTA (Worthy News)– Seven couples filed a federal lawsuit Friday challenging North Dakota's constitutional ban on same-sex marriage. North Dakota became the last state in the country to be sued by same-sex couples seeking the right to marry in their home state.

Cases are pending in all 31 states which do not recognize gay marriage. Over the past year, judges have overturned several bans on same-sex marriage since the U.S. Supreme Court struck down part of the Federal Defense of Marriage Act.

In 2004, 73% of voters in North Dakota approved a constitutional amendment defining marriage as between a man and a woman.

In 19 states and the District of Columbia, same-sex couples can already be married.

    A civil union contract could end all this. Live together like most people do. If marriage is so great and you are so I'm love. Then how about let's look at the devoir cue rate of same sex couples. I feel they have several other options. Why is it they choose marriage? Since they want to live in a life style that is out side of what many feel acceptable. Then let them find or legislat an option that matches there beliefs. But this is just an opinion not an attack or hate as many who ask for tolerance seem soooo fast to jump to.
