May 21, 2003 – Federal Constitutional Marriage Amendment Introduced

Rep. Marilyn Musgrave (R-CO) introduced a proposed amendment to the Constitution of the United States (Bill #H.J. Res. 56), which declared: “Marriage in the United States shall consist only of the union of a man and a woman. Neither this Constitution or the constitution of any State, nor state or federal law, shall be construed to require that marital status or the legal incidents thereof be conferred upon unmarried couples or groups.”
