Minnesota became the 12th state to recognize same-sex marriages last year.
According to an article in the Minneapolis Star-Tribune last month, there are more than 2,900 legal-same sex couples in Minnesota.
After it became law last August, the Associated Press found one in three marriage licenses in the state went to same-sex couples.
The U.S. Census Bureau estimates there are about 10,000 same-sex couples living in Minnesota.
There are now 17 states and the District of Columbia, which allow marriages.
Thirty-four states including both Dakotas and Nebraska prohibit same-sex marriage.
