  • FOR NAUGHT? This was the scene in May 2014 as same-sex couples lined up for marriage licenses at the Pulaski County Courthouse. The Arkansas Supreme Court soon will rule whether those marriages were legal.

I forgot to note that May 9 marked the second anniversary of Circuit Judge Chris Piazza's ruling that the Arkansas ban on same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. It took more than a year, until June 26, 2015, before the U.S. Supreme Court tied the final bow, but some 500 people married in the joyous weeks after Piazza's ruling temporarily ended legal discrimination in Arkansas.

I think it's worth a note.

Tell me, has the family or the institution of marriage been damaged or enhanced?
