Good for Baltimore! A great city, it would be a lovely place to get married. Me and my husband got married in New Canaan, Connecticut in July 2009, soon after they brought in equal marriage. We had organised a tour of the States for our summer holiday and realised a month before we left that during the week we were to spend in New York City, if we hopped over the border into Connecticut we could get married, really married, not just a civil partnership… We organised everything in a month, it was initially going to be just us two, but in the end we had a wedding party of 16 family and friends. The Justice of the Peace who married us and the staff at New Canaan Town Hall couldn’t have been more helpful and it felt right that they, along with the town’s mayor, came along to the ceremony as well! We’ve never heard a negative reaction to our story and our wedding, we are just waiting for the rest of the world to catch up and recognise our marriage and certificate for what they are!
Great concept to move marriage equality forward throughout all the U.S. Once it’s seen how much money is generated, ‘moral’ arguments will disappear.
NOM must be going berserk! LOL
If both Rhode Island and New Jersey converted there laws from civil unions to allowing same sex marriage – then all of the north east coast states will have same sex marriage!
Both Rhode Island and New Jersey actually do not ban same sex marriage in there statute books – so it should be easy!
Sorry I forgot Delaware – how silly of me.
They also have civil unions – but bans same sex marriage.
The three US states of Rhode Island, New Jersey and Delaware are completely surrounded by states that currently have same sex marriage.
