The Missouri Supreme Council ruled Monday that the state’s marriage license ban violated the Constitution and violated the state constitution.
The court ruled the state constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage is unconstitutional, even though it did not include language explicitly prohibiting it.
The ruling comes after the state legislature passed a bill to legalize same-gender marriages in 2015.
The law did not mention same- gender marriage and was signed into law by Gov.
Eric Greitens, who was a Republican before he ran for president.
A similar ban on same- sex marriages was overturned by the Missouri Supreme Courts in June 2016.
It was one of the few times in the country that a court ruled that same- genders can marry.
The state of Missouri had argued the ban was a constitutional amendment that did not address the validity of marriage between a man and a woman.
But the Missouri Constitutional Convention rejected that argument in 2017.
