Only a union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage in this state. This endorsement of traditional marriage was approved by the voters in 2008, by a 56–44 margin. Two years earlier, voters had rejected, by a 52–48 margin, a proposal that went considerably further, by preventing the state or any of its political subdivisions from creating or recognizing any “legal status for unmarried persons … similar to that of marriage.” This section has not been addressed by the courts.
