On Wednesday, an appeals court ruling gave them hope that other gay men and women will be able to legally marry in Utah soon. A 2-1 decision by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said same-sex couples have the same right as opposite-sex couples to marry. “I am so happy,” said Call, ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.

U.S. District Judge Richard Young ruled that the state’s ban violates the U.S. Constitution’s equal-protection clause because it treats couples differently based on their sexual orientation. “Same-sex couples, who would otherwise qualify to marry in Indiana, have the right to marry in Indiana,” he wrote. “These couples, when gender and sexual orientation...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
