USA, Arkansas: Legally Married Same Sex Couples Petition for Recognition

Written by scott on August 17th, 2013

ArkansasThings are really breaking out in Arkansas. In addition to a marriage equality lawsuit and a proposed ballot initiative, there’s a new suit from married same sex parents. LGBTQ Nation reports:

Seven legally wed same-sex couples have petitioned a judge to recognize the parental rights of both spouses and to have both parents’ names on their childrens’ birth certificates. The couples filed a petition on Thursday in Pulaski County Circuit Court. They are part of a group that is trying to topple Arkansas’ constitutional ban on gay marriage.

Which of these methods has the best chance of success in a red state like Arkansas?
