    Delaware Becomes the 11th State to Allow Same-Sex Marriage

    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/08/us...iage.html?_r=0

    Delaware on Tuesday became the 11th state to permit same-sex marriage, the latest in a string of victories for those working to extend marital rights to gay and lesbian couples.

    The marriage bill passed the State Senate by a vote of 12 to 9 Tuesday afternoon.

    “It’s a great day in Delaware,” said Gov. Jack Markell, a Democrat, who signed it within minutes of passage before an overjoyed crowd of activists. “I am signing this bill now because I do not intend to make any of you wait one moment longer.”

    Same-sex couples will be eligible for marriage licenses on July 1.
    Congratulations Delaware!

    Seems like another state every month.

    Congrats Delaware!

    I think the next up is Minnesota. Last I checked, the MN House will be voting on Thursday with sources in both the House and Senate saying that the bill has a strong chance of passing in each of their respective chambers.

    And the bill sponsors in the Illinois House have stated they will bring the bill to a vote immediately once they have the votes.

    This is the way it should be--states deciding for themselves without having Big Brother force it upon them.

    Looks like I might have to look into the Delaware/D.C. area in the future to expand my culinary management compan in the future..
    I'm in the process of opening a catering/banquet hall in Seatle and hopefully we can open up before the end of the month.
    I freaking hate dealing with construction contractors.

    I really have my eye on San Francisco.There's a very great local chef who I've been dying to go into business with.Has lots of connections in the gay community.
    Gay weddings comprise about 12 percent of my wedding revenue,and tha'ts revenue I have no problem pursuing.
    I know I can make a lot of money in Cali.
    Sorry it's gonna have to take a Federal judge to open up Cali to enterprising businessmen like myself.

    And another irrelevant post by someone who has no education on this particular issue.
