This essay on the Obergefell decision highlights the opportunity it presents to get states to retreat from the moralistic conception of marriage that the Supreme Court reinforced when it extended marriage rights to same-sex couples. The paper identifies and discusses what some states were considering in the lead-up to Obergefell -- and exposes how marriage-skeptics and those engaged in "massive resistance" to same-sex marriage rights can work together for a future of marriage, cleansed of its religious, gendered, and bourgeois history and manifestation.
