Utah

After a Utah judge struck down the state's ban on same-sex marriage on Dec. 20, 2013, prompting more than 900 same-sex couples to tie the knot, the U.S. Supreme Court put the ruling on hold on Jan. 6. Gov. Gary Herbert instructed state agencies to recognize gay marriages on Oct. 6 after the Supreme Court effectively legalized the union. Three gay couples who sued over Utah’s ban exchanged kisses and cried at a news conference, AP reports.
