U.S. District Judge rules Oklahoma's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, but doesn't make same-sex marriage legal yet.


At least according to HRC, the ruling that Oklahoma's laws are unconstitutional does not result in an immediate legalization of same-sex marriage, unlike in Utah where it kinda sorta did. So if you want to marry someone of the same sex in Oklahoma, your only current options are at a few Native American reservations wherein it is legal.

Also, in case you have ever spent 9 years waiting for the courts to hear a case of yours,
Two plaintiff couples, Mary Bishop and Sharon Baldwin and Gay Phillips and Susan Barton, filed their case, Bishop v. Oklahoma, in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Oklahoma in November 2004.
Oklahoma: apparently not a place to go for speedy judicial hearings.
