Washington legislators voted in favor of legalizing marriage equality this week, and Governor Christine Gregoire is expected to sign the bill into law shortly. Thus in just over 90 days the Evergreen State would become the seventh to grant marriage licenses to members of the LGBT community.
I really have not seen many posts about this on either Facebook or Twitter, so either people are waiting until it becomes law in Washington or they are waiting until it becomes law in America. Regardless, that last one is not going to occur for many years, so I recommend celebrating any victory as it comes along.
In case anyone is confused or not excited by the sentences prior, I recommend watching this passionate speech by Rep. Maureen Walsh. Not only do Walsh's mixed emotions on the issue prove just how divisive it can be, but how simple this legal dilemma is when stripped of personal opinion or duty to cultural values.
