States should only recognize marriage as between a man and a woman. In New Hampshire, we have such a law. Moreover, the Defense of Marriage Act protects our state's marriage laws from what any other states might choose. As long as these protections remain the law of the land, an amendment to the Constitution is unnecessary.

If activist judges force states to recognize non-traditional marriages endorsed by other states, I will support legislation that returns this power to the people as the framers of our Constitution so clearly intended.
