Equality Maryland has been working hard ever since their Attorney General issued an opinion that basically said same sex couples that married out of state will have relationship recognition when they return home. For many residents who may choose to take the short drive to Washington DC where couples began to marry this week, the opinion was welcome.
There are still lingering questions for these couples so Equality Maryland and Partners put together a FAQ (.pdf) to help answer questions for same sex married couples traveling to or living in Maryland.
But even with this important opinion, protections for same sex couples remain vulnerable. You can help stop a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage in Maryland, or even the possible impeachment of the Attorney General (and here), by sending a strong message that we expect Maryland to start issuing marriage licenses to same sex couples as soon as possible. This is how you can help.
