The U.S. Supreme Court announced Monday morning that they would not move forward with same-sex marriage appeals in five states, which looked to make the unions illegal. The decision allows same-sex couples to begin applying for marriage licenses in their state. It could also mean same-sex marriage is coming to Kansas.
Back in June, the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals struck down bans on same-sex marriage in both Utah and Oklahoma. Appeals brought before the U.S. Supreme Court to reverse those rulings were turned away, effectively making same-sex marriage legal in those states.
