LGBT Marriage

Same-sex marriage is legal in the U.S. state of California. The state first issued marriage licenses to same-sex couples on June 16, 2008, as a result of the Supreme Court of California finding in In re Marriage Cases that barring same-sex couples from marriage violated the state’s Constitution.
As of June 2015, same-sex marriages are recognized and performed in California as a result of the Supreme Court’s decision in Obergefell v. Hodges, which overturned all laws prohibiting same-sex marriage on a federal level.
