What will happen to same-sex marriage around the country if Obergefell v. Hodges falls

Published December 14, 2022


An article in Time magazine on the possible effects to same-sex marriage if the Supreme Court reconsiders Obergefell v. Hodges, the 2015 case that made same-sex marriage legal in every U.S. state, quotes Michael Boucai. “Unlike Roe v. Wade, Obergefell wasn’t simply decided on liberty grounds, it was also decided on equality grounds,” Boucai says. “Though I think that there’s every reason to be worried, and it’s good to err on the side of caution, and I’m glad that the Democrats were able to score this political win with Republican support, I would not be panicking right now about the prospect of Obergefell being overruled.”
