CFI–Michigan is currently in the process of challenging the discriminatory nature of the Michigan Marriage Statute MCL 551.7, which only allows “Ordained Ministers of the Gospel” and a very limited set of Civic Officials to solemnize marriages. CFI-Michigan is seeking to persuade the State of Michigan to amend the statute to permit secular celebrants to solemnize weddings. If such a legislative solution proves unattainable, CFI is prepared to bring a law suit to achieve that goal.
