Minnesota’s gay marriage record shows that the man who legally married his partner before becoming gay was not legally married to her after his marriage.
The records, obtained by The Associated Press, also show that after the man’s marriage, he began seeing his partner’s mother and the couple were living together.
The AP obtained the records after a public records request.
Minnesota law does not specify the rules for marriage, but the Minnesota Supreme Court ruled in 2013 that a man can legally marry a person who has lived with him for at least five years.
The Minnesota Court of Appeals later ruled in a separate case that it was not the marriage of the man and woman.
The state’s attorney general says the law is ambiguous.
The attorney general’s office has said that because the law does allow for marriage of same-sex couples, it is not clear if the man is legally married after his relationship with the woman.
