Kansas becomes marriage equality state No. 33. Its laws fall in line with the rest of the 10th circuit, which previously ruled Oklahoma and Utah anti-marriage-equality laws violated due process and equal protection. When the Supreme Court refused to hear appeals from those two states, the ruling applied to the rest of the circuit, which also includes New Mexico, Kansas, Wyoming and Colorado.
New Mexico became a marriage equality state last year. The rest of the 10th circuit states have become marriage equality states since the October Supreme Court decision not to hear the Utah and Oklahoma cases.
