While states like Indiana and North Carolina are fighting constitutional amendments to ban any form of relationship recognition for gay and lesbian couples, another north eastern state has stepped forward to treat us like almost-equals as Delaware's legislature okays civil unions.
The Delaware House of Representatives gave final approval Thursday evening to a civil unions bill that will provide same-sex couples with all of the rights and benefits of marriage under state law.
The House voted 26-15 in favor of the measure. The Delaware Senate voted 13-6 to approve the bill on April 7, and the state's governor, Democrat Jack A. Markell, has said he plans to sign it
How long do you think it will be before they pass actual marriage equality instead of civil unions?
