A federal judge struck down Nebraska's ban on same-sex marriage on Monday. Only 12 states currently ban gay marriage. Here's a look at the path same-sex marriage has taken across the country.
In Texas, the state's gay marriage ban was struck down in January 2014 by a federal judge who said it serves "no legitimate governmental purpose." But, as in many other states, enforcement was delayed pending appeals. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit heard the case last month and a ruling is pending.
