Baltimore police do not have to reinstate an officer who was fired after the department discovered she was married to an incarcerated Dead Man Inc. gang member, an appeals court has ruled. The Court of Special Appeals on Tuesday upheld a decision by Baltimore police to terminate Meredith Cross, who argued that her constitutional rights were violated when she was fired from the department because she married Carlito Cabana –– a convicted murderer and a member of the Dead Man Inc. prison gang.

A recent Pentagon announcement made it clear that same-sex spouses of U.S. military personnel will begin receiving full benefits immediately. But once military service ends, they may be out of luck. LGBT veterans and their partners could find themselves unable to receive equal veterans' benefits due to a portion of U.S. law, according to a letter written by Secretary of Veterans Affairs Eric Shinseki . After the Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act in June, the federal government was quick to announce that married same-sex couples would receive all federal marriage benefits.

A prominent gay rights organization that helped bankroll Maryland's effort to pass same-sex marriage last year announced on Tuesday a new $3 million plan to push for such unions in several more states in the next three years. The group, Freedom to Marry, said its "Roadmap to Victory: Finishing the Job" is aimed at taking advantage of the "irrefutable momentum" created by victories in states like Maryland but also in the U.S. Supreme Court last month. The court overturned a key provision of the law banning federal recognition of same-sex marriages in states where it is already legal, including Maryland.

Federal employees who are in same-sex marriages will be allowed to sign up spouses and children for health insurance and other benefits immediately, the Office of Personnel Management announced Friday — the first significant federal policy change to follow this week's landmark Supreme Court case.

" Federal employees will have until Aug. 26 to make changes to their health care, life insurance, and dental and vision plans.

Married in Maryland gives locals a chance to share their wedding experiences throughout the planning process. The blogger writes up until just before his or her big day, but don't you want to know how it went?  I would like to share how former blogger Katie Mercado (now MacNichol)'s wedding went. Katie is one of my best friends and I was lucky enough to be asked to be a bridesmaid.  Her wedding weekend was absolutely perfect, and I think I can speak for her when I say it was just as she imagined it would be. Katie and Sam's wedding ceremony and reception were held at Morningside Inn in Frederick.

It was extremely disappointing to read in The Sun that Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is planning to preside over same-sex marriages on June 16 here in Baltimore ("Mayor will preside over mass wedding of gay couples," May 20). I, and many others, believe her decision to do so speaks volumes about her understanding - or lack of understanding - of the moral issues surrounding same-sex marriages. As a Christian and trusted political official, she must know the devastating long-range effects of such actions.

The DC Sports Bog is reporting that Robert Griffin III will get married to Rebecca Liddicoat on July 6 in Virginia, and found the information on The Knot, where the couple registered. A corresponding registry at Bed, Bath and Beyond has the same date, according to the DC Sports Bog, a blog for the Washington Post. The couple met at Baylor and he proposed in 2010. She's from Colorado, previous reports said. What we want to know is whether or not RGIII and his bride will have as much fun taking wedding photos as Joe Flacco and his wedding party did. Here's a reminder of what the Flaccos' wedding album looked like . Either way, we wish RGIII and his fiancée the best of luck.

To wrap up our pre-marital counseling, Sam and I were guided in setting goals for our future. Individually we each set three personal, couple and family goals, then shared them with each other and compared notes. Luckily, our goals were pretty much the same! Our counselor recommended that we keep these goals and every five years go back to reference them and evaluate if we met each or how things changed and adjusted since they were written. From there, she said we could write new goals for the next five years to come, and so on. This idea has lead me on an endless thought over the past few days about what the future holds and how getting married is such a major milestone in life.

Healthy societies around the world throughout history have given marriage between a man and a woman special legal protection because of the recognition that it is the one institution that ensures the society's stable future through the orderly procreation and upbringing of children. Today, 72 percent of black children, 53 percent of Hispanic children and 36 percent of white children are born outside of marriage. The decline in marriage and the rise in illegitimacy are prime factors in crime, poverty and social decay.

This is what kind of roll the Ravens are on now: they've even inspired a love story. It's not a gauzy, Hallmark Channel tale, but a story of serendipity, fate and perseverance - and a football team at the center of it all. It stars an Overlea couple named Daisy Sudano and Jim Pellegrini, who will travel to New Orleans next week and tie the knot the day before the Ravens play the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII. But if you're thinking it's the story of two crazy, love-struck kids about to get hitched in the Big Easy on a purple-and-black lark, think again.
