On November 2, 2004, Issue 1, known as the Ohio Marriage Amendment, passed with 52% of the popular vote. (1) The Amendment reads: In the wake of Goodridge v. Department of Public Health, (3) which legalized same-sex marriage in Massachusetts, and Baker v. State, (4) which mandated civil unions in Vermont, same-sex marriage opponents argued that the Ohio Marriage Amendment was necessary to prevent the march of same-sex marriage and civil unions into the Midwest. The passage of the Ohio Marriage Amendment achieved this goal. Unless the Amendment is either repealed or declared unconstitutional, couples in same-sex marriages and civil unions cannot receive legal recognition in Ohio. (5)
