Same Sex, Different States by Andrew Koppelman

Book Description

Must a state in which gay marriage is not legal recognize such a marriage performed in another state? The Constitution does not require recognition in all cases, but it does forbid states from nullifying family relationships based in other states, or from making themselves havens for people who are trying to escape obligations to their spouses and children. In this book, Andrew Koppelman offers workable legal solutions to the problems that arise when gay couples cross state borders. Drawing on historical precedents in which states held radically different moral views about marriage (for example, between kin, very young individuals, and interracial couples), Koppelman shows which state laws should govern in specific situations as gay couples travel or move from place to place. Americans are profoundly divided over same-sex marriage, and now that gay civil unions and marriages are legal in some states, the issue has become increasingly urgent. Koppelman offers a sensible approach that will appeal to the best instincts of both sides.

Books By Author Andrew Koppelman

Defending American Religious Neutrality by Andrew Koppelman Defending American Religious Neutrality, Hardback (January 2013)

While First Amendment doctrine treats religion as a human good, the state must not take sides on theological questions. Koppelman explains the logic of this uniquely American form of neutrality: why it is fair to give religion special treatment, why old (but not new) religious ceremonies are permitted, and why laws must have a secular purpose.

Right to Discriminate? by Andrew Koppelman Right to Discriminate?, Hardback (July 2008)

Should the Boy Scouts of America and other noncommercial associations have a right to discriminate when selecting their members? Does the state have a legitimate interest in regulating the membership practices of private associations? This book concentrates on these questions - raised by Boy Scouts of America v Dale.

Gay Rights Question in Contemporary American Law by Andrew Koppelman Gay Rights Question in Contemporary American Law, Paperback (June 2002)

In this work Andrew Koppelman shows the powerful legal and moral case for gay equality, but argues that the courts cannot and should not impose it. The author places his case in a broad moral and social context, offering original, pragmatic and workable legal solutions.

Antidiscrimination Law and Social Equality by Andrew Koppelman Antidiscrimination Law and Social Equality, Paperback (September 1998)

Arguing that although it is not the role of a liberal state to shape its citizens' beliefs, this work suggests that a moral code for the prevention of discrimination is needed. The text responds to objections to discrimination law from liberal theory, and outlines the moral principles it posits.
