About this website
This site tracks the current status of same-sex marriage laws in each of our fifty states. I aimed to present an interactive and engaging way to compare the laws enacted in each state and raise further awareness of this vital issue that is dividing our country and our people. I'll keep the information updated as laws improve, but please let me know if I missed anything. Reading some of these laws can be upsetting, but I hope you share my confidence that the states on the map above will one day be united in purple.
