The state of marriage equality in the US by population

The state of marriage equality in the US by population

Currently, 19 states and Washington D.C. currently allow same-sex marriage licenses, which means 43.6% of Americans live in a state with marriage equality.

9 states have had their bans overruled, but a judge issued a stay while the decision is contested.  Those states represent 21.5% of the US population.

22 states have a same-sex marriage ban currently being contested in court. Those states represent 34.9% of the nation.  There are no states whose same-sex marriage ban is going unchallenged.

Those who married since Wednesday’s ruling striking down the state’s gay marriage ban are in limbo.
