Congratulations Delaware!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.
Its 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.
Seems like another state every month.
