Same Sex Marriage Issues

Same Sex Marriage Issues

In 2004 Massachusetts was the first state to legalize same sex marriage. Same sex marriage was legalized due to a ruling in favor of marriage equality in the 2003 case Goodridge v. Department of Public Health, 440 Mass. 309, 798 N.E. 2d 941, (2003). Following suit, in 2015 the U.S. Supreme Court decided the landmark case Obergefell v. Hodges, which ruled that denying same sex couples the right to marry was a violation of their constitutional rights. #samesexmarriage
