Until the U.S. Supreme Court ruled on June 26 that same-sex couples have a constitutional right to marry, Georgia was one of the last two states with a ban on same-sex marriage in place and no ruling to overturn it.  Roll over each state to see a box pop up explaining its previous status.  There was legal turmoil beneath the colors on this map; for example, Alabama's chief justice at one point told probate judges to ignore the federal rulings enabling gay marriage there.  All states must now perform and honor gay marriage as they do heterosexual marriage.
