YAY New Hampshire!

3 06 2009

New Hampshire is now the 6th state to legalize same-sex marriage.  The New Hampshire Legislature approved changes to a same-sex marriage bill that Governor John Lynch signed into legislation today. The law will take effect January 1st, 2010.

Lynch, who originally supported civil unions but not same-sex marriage, said that a separate system is not an equal system.  He also said:

Today, we are standing up for the liberties of same-sex couples by making clear that they will receive the same rights, responsibilities — and respect — under New Hampshire law.
