Meet the first State to legalize same-sex marriage

On November 18, 2003, the Massachusetts Supreme Court found the state’s ban on same sex marriage, unconstitutional, and that the state could not deny humans the right to marriage.

The court then gave the State 180 days to change the law.
As of late 2005, Massachusetts remained the only state to recognize same-sex marriage.

Right after the law was passed, Marcia Kadish, 56, and Tanya McCloskey, 52, were the first to legally get married at Cambridge City Hall.

People made merry after the law was passed, and others protested as expected.

As some national politicians were for the idea, other groups such as the Roman Catholic Church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day, etc. still oppose same sex.
