Before the Supreme Court ruled Friday that marriage was a constitutional right same-sex couples, 15 states were not granting gay couples marriage licenses:

Alabama

Arkansas

Georgia

Kansas

Kentucky

Louisiana

Michigan

Mississippi

Missouri

Nebraska

North Dakota

Ohio

South Dakota

Tennessee

Texas

The gay marriage bans in Ohio, Kentucky, Michigan, and Tennessee were at stake in the case the Supreme Court decided Friday, Obergefell v. Hodges. The marriage bans in Alabama, Kansas, and Missouri were in flux due to state resistance to previous court rulings against the measures. The marriage bans in Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Mississippi, South Dakota, and Texas were in effect before the Supreme Court’s ruling Friday.
