The state of California is planning to begin issuing licenses to same-sex couples this week, the first time the state has done so since a Supreme Court decision struck down bans on gay marriage in 2015.
The move is the latest in a wave of same-gender marriages that have taken place in California since the decision.
It is the first state to issue licenses to a same-person marriage and it comes just weeks after another court decision striking down a ban on gay unions in Oregon.
The state of Nevada has issued similar licenses to the same-age couples already married in other states.
Same-sex marriages have been legal in California for some time, but opponents have argued the state is not following the law.
