Iowa's Same-Sex Marriage Laws
A decision of the Iowa Supreme Court in the case Varnum v. Brien led to the legalization of same-sex marriage throughout the state on April 3, 2009. In Varnum, the court held that denying same-sex marriage rights violated the liberty and equal protection clauses of Iowa’s constitution.
