An estimated 293,000 same-sex couples have married since the June 26, 2015 US Supreme Court Obergefell v. Hodges decision that legalized gay marriage nationwide, according to a report from the UCLA School of Law Williams Institute published on June 1, 2020. There are currently about 513,000 married same-sex couples in the US.
