Two Alaska women made national news last week when they became the first same-sex couple to be married at New York's Empire State Building.
Afterward, Stephanie Figarelle said it'd be nice if Alaska approved same-sex marriage like seven other states and the District of Columbia have. Washington state made it the law last week.
But it doesn't look like Alaska will be joining that list anytime soon.
To do so, the state Constitution would have to be amended to remove the 1998 amendment that defined marriage between one man and one woman.
That would require both the state Senate and House to approve the measure. Gov. Sean Parnell would have to sign it just to get the question before voters. Parnell supports the traditional definition of marriage.
