Kevin Nyberg

Here's an amendment to the Kansas Constitution approved by 70% of voters April 5:

“Marriage. (a.)The marriage contract is to be considered in law as a civil contract. Marriage shall be constituted by one man and one woman only. All other marriages are declared to be contrary to the public policy of this state and are void. (b.) No relationship, other than a marriage, shall be recognized by the state as entitling the parties to the rights or incidents of marriage.”

Cute stuff, huh? First of all, it could be argued that "only" could also mean "ever," banning all re-marriage! But that is unlikely (we hope). More to the point, what are the "rights and incidents" of marriage? Child custody? Adoption? Co-habitation? Joint ownership of property?

This is what happens when ideology replaces law.

I think the standard way to do this is to build in a reference to the definition in the first part of the statute. The Kansas law does that fairly well, but you can also make it more explicit. So:

(bZ) This state or a political subdivision of this state may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage other than that defined in Sec. 32(a) of this statute.

Also, in the odd stuff dept, I'm pretty sure I knew Kevin Nyberg when I was in high school back in Kansas 15 some years ago.

who in the world thought "the state shall not recognize anything identical to marriage" sounded right?

i heard a while back someone complaining that the IQ of congress has dropped pretty substantially in the last twenty years. it seems that it's worse at the local level.
