In how many states is marriage equality legal?

Bradon Answered:

Since June 2015, marriage equality has been legal in every state across the U.S. That’s because a Supreme Court ruling determined that marriage is a guaranteed right that is protected under the U.S. Constitution and the Equal Protection clause of the 14th Amendment. Equal protection means that the government cannot discriminate against minority groups. If the government provides marriage licenses to some, but not all people, that is seen as a violation of the Equal Protection clause. That’s why some counties in certain states decided to stop issuing marriage licenses in protest of the Supreme Court decision.
