Love won,New Hampshire sixth state to legalize gay marriage

4 06 2009

The third time is a charm for New Hampshire. Yesterday the House of Representatives endorsed gay marriage with a 198 -176 vote after the state Senate approved the legislation 14-10. Then senator John Lynch signed the legislation into law.

It bill legalizing same-sex marriage was first approved in late April by both chambers, but the Senator wanted room for protection for religious organizations. After those were inserted the new bill was not approved by the Senate. That language has been slightly changed now and everyone seemed to agree this time. The law will effect on January first, hurrah!!
