What states currently ban gay marriage?
Gay marriage legislation in the US is constantly under attack from appeals to change state constitutions to explicitly ban gay marriage. At present, Alaska, Nevada, Montana, Oregon, Utah, Nebraska, Missouri, Michigan, North Dakota, Ohio, Kentucky, Oklahoma, Kansas, Louisiana, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Texas and Alabama have constitutional amendments that ban gay marriage. As a state's constitution is a strong part of the law, this makes legalizing gay marriage a more difficult task in these states.
Hawaii changed its state constitution as well, but only to redefine marriage as between opposite-sex partners.
