Hanna said Friday that he always hoped their legal victory would be one of the dominoes that would lead to the fall of same-sex marriage bans across the country. Supreme Court ruling Friday that made the right of same-sex couples to legally marry the law of the land. I feel like this is huge progress for our culture, for our country. Archbishop John C. A of Santa Fe residents on Friday expressed indifference or passive approval when asked about the ruling, indicating the issue is not nearly as charged as it once was.
Others were more effusive. Love wins!
Jeff Fenton, who about a year ago married his partner of 20 years, Chris Martinez, said the ruling made him want to cry — in a good way. Fenton said he had a similar feeling when he and Martinez formally exchanged marriage vows.
Fenton said he and Martinez had legal documents drawn up years ago that were intended to protect their assets and their legal rights to make medical and end-of-life care decisions for each other.
