Merely gay marriage?
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2012, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

As soon as today, the U.S. Supreme Court justices may decide if the court will hear a case and then rule on whether gays and lesbians have a constitutional right to marry ("Supreme Court to consider right of gays to marry," Tribune, Nov. 25).

If they eventually rule that gays and lesbians have a constitutional right to marry, would siblings or first cousins also finally have an unrestricted constitutional right to marry? Would older, single-adult parents have an unrestricted constitutional right to marry one of their adult offspring?

Is the goal really equality for all?
