An Ohio appellate court has ruled that the state's domestic violence law cannot be applied to unmarried (heterosexual) couples because the law "conflicts with the state constitutional amendment banning gay marriage." This was a major charge against that amendment, but Republicans pushed it through to crank up turnout of evangelicals. As ye sow, so shall ye reap. Sow discord within committed couples and reap the inability to control violence within some couples.
