This is another victory in the marriage equality fight. After taking a few steps back with California and Maine reversing their same-sex marriage laws, and New Jersey temporarily side-stepping the issue for now, D.C. has brought back the momentum. Congratulations!

D.C. Passed Gay Marriage!
Same-sex marriage is coming to our nation's capital. The city council just passed the measure for the second time in less than a month. The bill will now go to the Mayor for his signature, which he has promised. After a 30 day Congressional review, the signed bill will become law with same-sex marriages beginning in March 2010. This of course, is providing that Congress doesn't intervene, which it is not expected to do.
