Washington state Gov. Christine Gregoire has signed a new law making the state the 7th to allow same sex marriage.
Gregoire signed the bill in the state reception room in the Capitol, surrounded by gay rights supporters. “I’m proud our same-sex couples will no longer be treated as separate but equal,” Gregoire said.
It’s a historic moment, but same-sex couples can’t walk down the aisle just yet.
The law takes effect June 7, but opponents are already mounting challenges on multiple fronts.
Opponents are going to try to bring a challenge on the November ballot. Which I imagine would only bring more left leaning voters to the polls.
Marriage is getting gayer every day.
New Jersey’s Senate also approved same sex marriage today. The House is expected to sign off as well, but sadly Gov. Christie has pledged to veto.
