Alabama Gay Marriages

Alabama's attorney general says the state will not recognize same-sex marriages from Massachusetts even if that state's lawmakers provide for gay weddings.

Bill Pryor made the comments after Massachusetts' highest court ruled 4-3 that the state's ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional and gave lawmakers 180 days to come up with a solution that would allow gay couples to wed.

The Massachusetts court did not issue marriage licenses to the seven couples who sued and left the details to the Legislature.

Pryor said Alabama law defines marriage as the "unique relationship between a man and a woman" and that Alabama law does not allow members of the same sex to marry
