Emarriages for Gay Couples


Two Michigan State University professors want same-sex couples in any location to be able to receive marriage licenses remotely from states where the unions are legal.

Adam Candeub and Mae Kuykendall, both legal researchers, hope to spare same-sex couples the difficulty of traveling to one of the five states where they can legally marry.

According to National Public Radio, "With an 'e-marriage,' Candeub believes couples anywhere could go online and download their license from a state where same-sex marriage is legal. Then, they could still have their hometown ceremony with family and friends, the kiss and the cake."

However, critics argue that such a proposal would deny substantial economic benefits, such as hotel and other tourism fees, to states that took the lead in legalizing same-sex marriage.
