According to the Washington Post, Maryland will likely become the seventh state to recognize gay marriage:
A bill that would legalize same-sex marriage in Maryland was approved by the state Senate, which advanced a measure that narrowly cleared the House of Delegates last week.
The final vote by the state Senate ended a yearlong drama in Annapolis over the legislation, and marked the first time an East Coast state south of the Mason-Dixon line has supported gay nuptials.
With the vote, the measure moves to Gov. Martin O’Malley (D), who has said he will sign it.
Though Florida does not recognize gay marriage, several months back I wrote an article regarding steps you can take to protect you and your partner.
