Census finds 1,330 gay married couples in Minnesota

Email

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Minnesota doesn't permit same-sex couples to marry, but new figures from the Census Bureau shows it has nearly as many married same-sex couples as Iowa, where the unions are legal.

The bureau reports Tuesday that it found 1,330 married same-sex couples in Minnesota in the 2010 Census. That's nearly the 1,373 couples it counted in Iowa, which legalized gay marriage in 2009.
