Maryland same-sex couples prepare for marriages today
ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Gay couples are preparing for New Year’s Day weddings in the first state south of the Mason-Dixon Line to allow same-sex marriage, which will become legal today in Maryland.
The new law takes effect at 12:01 a.m. and follows a legislative fight that pitted Gov. Martin O’Malley against leaders of his Catholic faith.
Voters in the state, founded by Catholics in the 17th century, sealed the change by approving a November ballot question.
