Massachusetts

After gay marriage was upheld by the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court in November 2003, the first marriage licenses in Massachusetts were issued on May 17, 2004. Additionally, in July 2008, the state legislature extended the right for same-sex couples from outside of Massachusetts to wed in the state. (Photo: David Ryder/Getty Images)
