Illinois Becomes the 15th State to Legalize Same-sex Marriages
Today the Illinois legislature legalized same-sex marriages in that state. The IL governor supports the change and is expected to sign the bill into law today or tomorrow. Illinois becomes the 15th state to legalize same sex marriage (plus DC). Over a third (37%) of the US population as well as the country's three largest cities (NYC, LA, and Chicago) all have legal marriage between same-sex spouses.
Hawai'i's legislature is debating legalizing same-sex marriage this week also.
When and which red state will be the first to legalize same-sex marriage? Virginia?
