There is long-standing constitutional protection of the right to marry that applies to same-sex couples.

The Washington Post

By the time you read this, the Massachusetts Supreme Court may have decided whether or not the Constitution protects a right to gay marriage. Regardless of what the court decides, it will hardly settle what has become one of our most hotly contested constitutional debates. Evan Gerstmann's new book, Same-Sex Marriage and the Constitution, won't settle it either; but it is a clear and fair-minded guide to the strengths and weaknesses of the leading constitutional arguments for and against gay marriage.—Jeffrey Rosen
