What was the first state to legalize same-sex marriage?

  • New York
  • Massachusetts correct

    Massachusetts passed a law in 2003 allowing gay marriage, after its highest court ruled the state’s ban violated the constitutional rights of same-sex couples, making it the first state ever to legalize same-sex marriage. It would be another five years before number two, Connecticut, would make it legal. California jumped on that wagon, too, for a hot minute back in 2008 but Prop 8 slapped a no-no on that real quick which would hold for the next five years. It would be another two after that until same-sex marriage became legal everywhere in the summer of 2015. Yay marriage! Source: Huffington Post
