DESCRIPTION On Nov. 3, 2004, Oklahoma voters approved a state constitutional amendment limiting marriage in the state to opposite-gender couples. On Nov. 4, two Tulsa-area lesbian couples — Mary Bishop & Sharon Baldwin and Sue Barton & Gay Phillips — sued the state and federal governments for the right to marry and for recognition of the marriages of same-gender couples. In the years since then, Sue and Gay have gotten married in both Canada and California. Together 29 years, they are now fighting for the right to have their marriage recognized by the state of Oklahoma. Mary and Sharon, who have been together 17 years, are still fighting for the right to marry in Oklahoma. Check in here for background and the latest updates on the case, which is the longest-running marriage-equality lawsuit in the country.
