Use the map below to locate your state, and find up-to-date information about the fight for the freedom to marry. You will find what each state's status is, what's happening in the news, and the history of marriage in the state.

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 Alabama, a federal court has affirmed the freedom to marry, and both the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals and the U.S. Supreme Court have declined to impose a stay. Now, in light of the Alabama Supreme Court's interference, couples are seeking a class-action in federal court.


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.
