FAQs Regarding Same-Sex Relationships

If we were legally married in a state that recognized same-sex marriage before the Obergefell v. Hodges decision, do we have to get remarried?

No. In Obergefell, the Supreme Court held that same-sex couples have the right to marry and the right to have their marriages recognized in all states. And if you were legally married in one state that allowed same-sex marriage prior to Obergefell but you were, at that time, living in another state that did not allow same-sex marriage, your marriage must now be legally recognized.
