Md. high court says marriage ban OK A divided Maryland high court today affirmed the constitutionality of the state's law limiting marriage to couples of the opposite sex. Robert A. Zarnoch, the assistant attorney general who argued to uphold the 1973 law that defines marriage as being between a man and a woman, said that any change in the statute should be decided by the legislature. In his dissent, Chief Judge Robert M. Bell noted that, "...[M]any of the arguments made in support of the anti-miscegenation laws were identical to those made today in opposition to same-sex marriage."
