MA Lawmakers Gearing Up For Nup Expansion After Senate Vote

Massachusetts continues to lead the nation’s gay way:

The Massachusetts Senate on Tuesday voted to repeal an obscure 1913 law that has been used to keep out-of-state same-sex couples from marrying there.

Legislators in the state House of Representatives in Boston are expected to take similar action today, and Gov. Deval Patrick has promised to sign the repeal. The move could allow gays and lesbians from other states to marry in Massachusetts within weeks.

Those who fought to repeal the 1913 statute said Tuesday that the move — together with the California court decision — could amplify political momentum nationwide.

So, if that law was penned in 1913, the laws of progressive math say that we’ll have full marriage equality sometime around 2,103.

Better call the wedding planner!
