In 37 states - AL, AK, AZ, CA, CO, CT, DE, FL, HI, ID, IA, IL, IN, KS, ME, MD, MA, MN, MT, NC, NH, NJ, NM, NV, NY, OK, OR, PA, RI, SC, UT, VA, VT, WA, WV, WI, and WY - plus Washington, D.C. - same-sex couples have the freedom to marry once and for all. Additionally, same-sex couples can marry in some Missouri counties (based on a pro-marriage ruling now on appeal). Also in MO, the marriages of same-sex couples legally performed in other states are respected.

In 2015, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in several marriage legal cases. A favorable outcome could bring the freedom to marry to same-sex couples nationwide. This spring, Freedom to Marry will continue our work to demonstrate that all of America is ready for the freedom to marry. Learn about marriage at the Supreme Court here.
