In how many states is same-sex marriage legal?

Come di 2015, gli Stati Uniti. Supreme Court made same-sex marriage legale in all 50 stati.

In the case of Obergedell v. Hodges, il Supreme Court rules that same-sex marriage is considered a fundamental right by both the Due Process Clause and Equal Protection Clause under the Fourteenth Amendment.

No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devozione, sacrifice, and family,” said Justice Anthony Kennedy.

“In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were. As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. Their plea is that they do respect it, respect it so deeply that they seek to find its fulfillment for themselves.”
