“A divided state Senate voted Tuesday to make Delaware the 11th state in the nation to allow same-sex marriage, after hearing hours of passionate testimony from supporters and opponents.
Less than an hour after the Senate’s 12-9 vote, Democratic Gov. Jack Markell signed the measure into law.
‘I do not intend to make any of you wait one moment longer,’ a smiling Markell told about 200 jubilant supporters who erupted in cheers and applause following the Senate vote…
Delaware’s same-sex marriage bill was introduced in the Democrat-controlled legislature barely a year after the state began recognizing same-sex civil unions. The bill won passage two weeks ago in the state House on a 23-18 vote.”
