Attorney General Jackley Says SD’s Definition Of Marriage Is Still Valid

Attorney General Marty Jackley announced Wednesday that South   Dakota’s definition of marriage, which is limited to a man and a woman, is still valid.  On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court announced its ruling on California’s Proposition 8, which bans same-sex marriages, and the Defense of Marriage Act, which denies government benefits to same-sex married couples. The court struck down both Proposition 8 and DOMA.  In 2006, South Dakota voters approved a constitutional amendment making marriage valid only between a man and a woman.
