A bill that would legalize same-sex marriage in Maryland was approved by the state Senate, which advanced a measure that narrowly cleared the House of Delegates last week.

The final vote by the state Senate ended a yearlong drama in Annapolis over the legislation, and marked the first time an East Coast state south of the Mason-Dixon line has supported gay nuptials.

With the vote, the measure moves to Gov. Martin O’Malley (D), who has said he will sign it.

    It’s totally awesome. And for me it really did not get so much coverage! I finally found it here: http://tothecenter.com/2012/03/maryland-signs-same-sex-marriage-bill/! Good news for us! But it will be awhile yet for everyone to have such an open mind as him. It’s not always easy to do the right thing.
