Montana is joining the long list of states that allow same-sex marriages.

On Wednesday, a federal judge ruled that the state’s ban on same-sex marriage is unconstitutional.

The move comes after four gay couples filed a lawsuit in May challenging the ban.

Voters had previously approved an amendment to the state’s constitution that defined marriage as between one man and one woman, but yesterday’s ruling now overturns that.

Montana is now one of 34 states that allow same-sex marriage.
