Affirmation of Marriage Act (Virginia)

Virginia's Affirmation of Marriage Act prohibits marriage between same-sex couples in that state. The Act was later modified so as to further prohibit civil unions and domestic partnerships between persons of the same sex.

The extra statute reads:

A civil union, partnership contract or other arrangement between persons of the same sex purporting to bestow the privileges or obligations of marriage is prohibited. Any such civil union, partnership contract or other arrangement entered into by persons of the same sex in another state or jurisdiction shall be void in all respects in Virginia and any contractual rights created thereby shall be void and unenforceable.
