Gay Marriage in the USA -- 01/24/15

Gay marriage became legal yesterday in Alabama. I'm not aware that any marriages have begun and the state's executive government is still struggling to obtain a stay, but it's currently a marriage equality state:


As of today, 37+ states plus Washington DC issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples and recognize our marriages from other areas: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas (in select counties), Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming. And then there is Missouri, which allows same-sex marriage in the city of St. Louis, plus St. Louis County and Jackson County. The state of Missouri recognizes marriage performed in each of these three jurisdictions. The rest of the state is halted by a judicial stay.
