Same-Sex Marriage in Georgia
Decatur Same-Sex Marriage Attorney: 404-471-3874
On June 2015, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled in Obergefell v. Hodges that same-sex marriage was legal in the U.S. Because of this ruling, same-sex marriage is recognized by the state of Georgia.
This decision is a watershed moment in the struggle for gay rights and marriage equality. Prior to this ruling, Georgia did not recognize same-sex marriages at the state level. Now, same-sex couples all across the state and the U.S. have the same rights as couples of the opposite sex.
