North Carolina Supports Marriage

North Carolina joined 40 other states in cementing marriage as the basis of society, and the foundation of family law with a vote of 61% in favor of marriage, and 39% voting against the amendment, favoring marriage expansion instead.

This constitutional amendment holds judicial restraint on marriage from any recognition of a marriage-like relationship that does not meet the now-North Carolina definition, and orders that those relationships valid in other jurisdictions not be recognized in the State. See the MSNBC story on the constitutional referendum at

I have written on this topic widely, from the collateral effects of marriage expansion, to the importance of marriage to children and States generally, and the effects of marriage on wealth and business. Those articles can be accessed through my scholarship posted on the Social Science Research Network (SSRN) at http://ssrn.com/author=183817 . This scholarship affords a more in depth analysis of marriage from a family law foundation toward family restoration.

Marriage is now supported by more than 80% of the United States. The move toward marriage expansion and away from the solid foundation of one man and one woman is once again resoundingly declined. If not obvious to the media and legal elite, marriage and its meaning is most obvious to the general public as a foundation for society, the family, and the best chance for the thriving stability of children.
