EAST LANSING, Mich. – Two law professors say a Boston couple wanting to wed under Louisiana's covenant marriage law, or two New Orleans women seeking to wed in Massachusetts should be able to do so without leaving home.
Michigan State University's Adam Candeub and Mae Kuykendall have started the Legal E-Marriage Project, a clearinghouse for legislative proposals to establish "e-marriages."
The professors say states should let couples marry under the laws of whatever place they chose.
That would let same-sex couples marry in California under the laws of Massachusetts or Vermont.
And people wanting a covenant marriage with its stricter rules for divorce as offered in Arizona and Louisiana would be able to do so regardless of where they live.
