As of late Tuesday night, CNN is projecting that the North Carolina’s Amendment banning same-sex marriage has passed.
Many are concerned that isn’t just same-sex couples who are affected. CNN.com explains:
The amendment would alter North Carolina’s constitution to say that “marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this state.” Supporters argued that the amendment was needed to stop those trying to redefine marriage and ward off possible future actions of “activist judges.”
Opponents called the measure redundant and warned it could result in jeopardizing domestic violence protections for women and affect couples’ health benefits.
