A Federal District Judge has ruled that Indiana must recognize same-sex marriages that are performed in other states, eventually.
The ruling is on hold until the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals in Chicago makes its own ruling.
A lawsuit was filed on behalf of two women who live in Indianapolis and were married in 2011 in Iowa, where same sex marriage is legal.
One of the women works for the Indiana Department of Corrections and wants state benefits for her mate and that woman’s children.
The same judge also struck down Indiana’s same sex marriage ban back in June.
The 7th Circuit Court should hear oral arguments next week in the initial case.
