The Fight to Allow Same-Sex Marriage
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
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
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.
