US Same-Sex Marriage

January 24, 2013 by  

US Same-Sex Marriage, Rhode Island moved one step closer to approving same-sex marriage on Tuesday when the House Judiciary Committee unanimously agreed to send a marriage equality bill to the full House.

The bill revises current marriage law – including language that prohibits a man from marrying his mother, grandmother, stepmother and so on. The bill renders those relations gender-neutral: “No person shall marry his or her sibling, parent, grandparent, child…”

U.S. Rep. David Cicilline, an openly-gay Democrat, applauded his home state on Tuesday. On his official website and on his Facebook page, he issued a statement: “This important effort has received the support of a growing number of Rhode Islanders from nearly every political background and religious tradition, and I believe it is time our state recognizes the dignity and value of relationships between committed and loving individuals of the same gender by enacting full marriage equality in Rhode Island.”
