The institution of marriage in the United States is embroiled in controversy. In particular, the issue over gay marriage is drawing fierce cultural divides between those who have alternative definitions of marriage, both in society and according to the law. There has never been a time in U.S. history in which marriage rights have been so scrutinized and partisan.
