    You did present what you believe to be a reasonable solution.

    Others disagree.

    If the courts overturn laws legalizing same gender marriage- well then I will treat that like every other Supreme Court decision that I disagree with- I will still consider the Supreme Court ruling legal and binding.

    I was beginning to wonder if any American courts would disagree- and whether the Supreme Court would never even have to address the issue.

    Now that 3 Appellete courts have rule one way- and now one has ruled the other- the supreme court should take this up.

    Which is appropriate.

    Compelling gay Americans to fight for their civil rights on a state by state basis is anathema to the fundamental tenets of our Constitutional Republic and the rule of law. Citizens don't forfeit their civil liberties merely as a consequence of their state of residence, where the consistent application of citizens' rights is mandated by the 14th Amendment.
