Like so many other places in the States, Ohio is currently embroiled in a fierce debate over marriage equality.
The Buckeye State banned same-sex nuptials with their own DOMA back in 2004. With other states and DC pass their own marriage laws, and President Obama endorsing equality, activists are now making a concerted effort to overturn that law and bring Ohio into the 21st century.
As part of their coverage of the ongoing battle, Columbus’ WBNS-10 looked at two sides of the cultural divide. First up, David and Mark Cunningham, a gay couple who have been together for 20 years, have two children and are legally married in Connecticut. The rights bestowed there, of course, don’t transfer across state lines, meaning the men are given the short end of the marriage stick. For example, if Mark dies, David doesn’t get his pension.
