Ginsburg to Officiate at Same-Sex Wedding

Supreme Court justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg will be the first Supreme Court member to officiate at the marriage of a same-sex couple. Ginsburg will conduct the ceremony, this Saturday, between Michael M. Kaiser and John Roberts at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C., of which the former is president. Same-sex marriage became legal in the District of Columbia in December of 2009.

“I think it will be one more statement that people who love each other and want to live together should be able to enjoy the blessings and the strife in the marriage relationship,” Ginsberg said. She plans to officiate at another same-sex wedding in September.
