Goldberg, A Historical Guide to the Future of Marriage for Same-Sex Couples
A Historical Guide to the Future of Marriage for Same-Sex Couples, just posted by Suzanne B. Goldberg, Columbia, consists of a short essay introducing an historical brief in a New Jersey same-sex marriage case. It was published, with the full brief in the Columbia Journal of Gender and Law (2006). Here's the abstract: This article critically analyzes the evolving history of marriage, prompted by the marriage equality claims brought by same-sex couples. The article includes a copy of an amicus brief submitted on behalf of historians to a New Jersey appellate court in Lewis v. Harris, an ultimately successful challenge to the denial of relationship recognition rights for same-sex couples.
