Same-Sex Marriage

Same-Sex Marriage

Decatur Same-Sex Marriage Attorney: (404) 471-3874

On June 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that same-sex marriage was legal in the U.S. This decision is a watershed moment in the struggle for gay rights and marriage equality. Prior to this ruling, Georgia did not recognize same-sex marriages at the state level. Now, same-sex couples all across the state and the U.S. have the same rights as couples of the opposite sex. If you would like to learn more about same-sex marriage, feel free to contact Gibbs + Mabe, LLC.

Same-sex couples can now enjoy the same legal rights as opposite-sex couples, including:
