On Tuesday January 14, a federal Judge in Oklahoma ruled that states constitutional amendment of same-sex marriage is violating the federal Constitution, meaning that the state’s ban on same-sex couple is “an arbitrary, irrational exclusion of just one class of Oklahoma citizens from a governmental benefit”, wrote Judge Terence C. Kern of United States District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma, in Tulsa.

Oklahoma gay couples will have to wait, because this decision will not take effect immediately, and there can be an appeal to it. Just like Utah many marriages are in limbo, we need to wait until an appeal by Oklahoma would proceed in tandem or on a slower schedule Over the past year, the number of states authorizing same-sex marriage, whether through legislation or court order, has grown to 17, or 18 if Utah is included.
