An Updated Marriage Law Map

Middling America reader Vin alerted me to a divorce case in Mississippi involving a same-sex couple.  So, I've added a blue asterisk for Mississippi.  Also a Federal judge in Tennessee has ordered the Volunteer State to recognize the out-of-state marriages of three same-sex couples suing for recognition of their marriages.  The judge based her decision on the couples' suit likely being successful.

To recap:  To date Federal judges appointed by both Democratic and Republican presidents have ruled in favor of legalizing same-sex marriage in some aspect in:

  • Utah
  • Texas
  • Oklahoma
  • Ohio
  • Kentucky
  • Virginia
  • Tennessee
(It seems I may be missing some decisions, but there have been 100% favorable decisions to date.)
