Connecticut's Same-Sex Marriage Laws
Same-sex marriage became legal in Connecticut on November 12, 2008 following a state Supreme Court decision in Kerrigan v. Commissioner of Public Health. The plaintiffs in the case claimed that reserving marriage for only heterosexual couples was a violation of provisions of the Connecticut Constitution that guaranteed liberty and equality to all state citizens. Marriage replaced civil unions, which were created to allow same-sex partners some legal recognition.
