Asked by an anonymous Tumblr user.
Marriage laws vary from state to state and are not determined by the federal government.
The states and areas in the U.S. that perform marriages between same-sex couples are:
- District of Columbia
- Illinois (Champaign and Cook Counties only. Marriages becomes legal in the rest of the state on June 1, 2014.)
- New Hampshire
- New Jersey
- New Mexico
- New York
- Rhode Island
If your state is not on this list, then a law would need to be passed to make same-sex marriage legal. You can contact your state legislators to make your opinions known.
