Jerame posted a cool graphic last week that compared states where you can get married to your same-sex partner vs where you can marry your first cousin. Indiana has a ban on same-sex marriage, but you can have an incestuous relationship legally - if you're old enough.
Friend of the blog, Chris Worden, sends over the legalese on Indiana's law:
Indiana Code 31-11-1-2
Marriage to close relative prohibited; marriages between cousins; exceptions
Sec. 2. Two (2) individuals may not marry each other if the individuals are more closely related than second cousins. However, two (2) individuals may marry each other if the individuals are:
(1) first cousins; and
(2) both at least sixty-five (65) years of age.
As added by P.L.1-1997, SEC.3.
So - according to the state the purpose of marriage is for procreation and, hence, same-sex marriage should be outlawed (as if no gays or lesbians have kids!). Childless couples, the elderly, and kissing cousins (as long as their elderly!) are perfectly fine - even without bearing children. Is that marriage equality?
