The Fight to Allow Same-Sex Marriage

Jackalyn Rainosek

Jackalyn Rainosek and Liz Cloud made their

union official on November 6, 2015 after

sharing a life together for more than two decades. The Houston

couple was finally able to legally marry in the state of Texas

following the June 26, 2015 Supreme Court decision allowing same-

sex marriages in all states.

In 2003, Massachusetts became the first state to legalize gay

marriage after a ruling of 4-3 by the Supreme Judicial Court of

Massachusetts. San Francisco followed suit by challenging the

California law prohibiting marriage of same-sex couples and began

issuing marriage licenses to gay couples.

Marriage licenses for same-sex couples were also issued in

counties in New Mexico, New York and Oregon but lawsuits to

block the marriages ensued.

On April 20, 2005, Connecticut became the second state to

approve same-sex civil unions and the first state to do so without

force from the courts. California became the next state to

approve legislation allowing same-sex couples to marry,

however, the bill was quickly vetoed by then-Governor Arnold

Schwarzenegger.

Battles continued to loom in states across the country for the

legalization of same-sex marriage with bans in multiple states.

On May 9, 2012, President Barack Obama endorsed same-sex

marriage, becoming the first president in history to fully support

civil rights for gays.

One by one, states begin legalizing gay

marriage and on November 20, 2014, South Carolina

becomes the 35th state to do so. On June 26, 2015, same-

sex couples throughout the country finally achieved victory

as the Supreme Court declared gay marriage legal in all 50

states.

Jackalyn Rainosek and Liz Cloud exercised their right to a

legal marriage on November 6, 2015 in Houston, Texas. The

date marked their 21st anniversary.
