SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (WBKO) -- A federal judge in Utah has ruled the state's ban on same-sex marriage to be unconstitutional.

Judge Robert J. Shelby said, in his opinion, denying gay couples to wed "perpetuates inequality."

This comes one day after New Mexico became the 17th state to accept same-sex marriage.

Overall, the nation's attitude toward gay marriage has shifted over the past ten years.

In 2003, 55% were against it, according to The Washington Post.

Now, 58% say they support it.
