Hawaii

The Hawaii Senate passed the bill 19-4 on Nov. 12, making Hawaii the 15th state to legalize same-sex marriage. The law is set to take affect on June 1, 2014. "With today's vote, Hawaii joins a growing number of states that recognize that our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters should be treated fairly and equally under the law," Hawaii native President Obama said in a statement.
