Same-Sex Marriage


Effective January 1, 2014, OAR 105-010-0018 mandates that in the administration of all state laws, all state agencies must recognize the marriages of same-sex couples validly performed in other jurisdictions to the same extent that they recognize other marriages validly performed in other jurisdictions.This temporary rule, which will expire on June 30, 2014, has been put in place to ensure consistent application of statewide policy by agencies and to comply with the federal Constitution.

Impacted state agencies have been directed to implement program-specific administrative rules prior to the expiration date of this temporary rule.Links to these agency program changes can be found below.
