As a gay couple together since 1992, we believe that marriage and all the responsibilities and benefits that come with it should be available to committed gay and lesbian couples everywhere. So we created Purple Unions, a place where gay and lesbian couples can find gay friendly wedding vendors to help them plan their perfect wedding day.
After the Massachusetts Superior Court ruled in favor of gay and lesbian couples, Massachusetts legalized gay marriage in May, 2004, becoming the first US state to do so. In 2007, an anti-gay marriage amendment was soundly defeated, and in 2008, the legislature voted to remove a residency requirement so that out of state couples could marry in Massacusetts.
Massachusetts also allows gay and lesbian couples to adopt.
