Marriage is the union between one man and one woman.
North Carolina voters will decide whether to make that part of the state Constitution on May 8, and Monday night county commissioners unanimously adopted a resolution supporting that amendment.
Mark Jones made the motion to adopt the resolution, saying North Carolina is the only southern state without that amendment. “It protects the sanctity of marriage between a man and woman.”
While law already prohibits other types of marriages, Commissioner Ken White said that the amendment would mean a same-sex couple couldn’t “judge shop” and get a court ruling in their favor. “That law could be voided.”
