Maui Same-Sex Marriage
As of 2013, the Aloha State is proud to be one of 35 U.S. states where same sex marriage is legal. A long-running favorite for destination weddings, Maui continues to be one of the most beautiful places in the world to say 'I Do'.
Beginning January 1st, 2012, civil unions for same sex couples in the state of Hawaii officially included access to the full range of state law rights and responsibilities. On December 2nd, 2013, same sex couples were officially allowed to wed under the Hawaii Marriage Equality Act, signed into law by Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie.
Hawaii-born President Barack Obama states that "By giving loving gay and lesbian couples the right to marry if they choose, Hawaii exemplifies the values we hold dear as a nation. I’ve always been proud to have been born in Hawaii, and today’s vote makes me even prouder."
