Rhode Island Becomes 10th US State to approve Marriage Equality

Thursday, Rhode Island became the 10th US state to approve same-sex marriage.


The Rhode Island House of Representatives voted 56-15 to give final approval to a bill legalizing gay marriage. Legislators then broke out in a spontaneous singing of My Country ‘Tis of Thee, and Gov. Lincoln Chafee signed the bill in a ceremony on the steps of the state capitol.


All six New England states now allow same-sex marriage.


Next Tuesday, the Delaware state Senate is slated to vote on a bill authorizing same-sex marriage that passed the House last week.
