Vermont Legislature Legalizes Same-Sex Marriage
"Vermont on Tuesday became the fourth state to recognize gay marriage, and the D.C. Council voted to recognize same-sex unions performed in other states. The two actions give same-sex marriage proponents new momentum, following a similar victory last week in Iowa's Supreme Court.
"'I think we're going to look back at this week as a moment when our entire country turned a corner,' said Jennifer C. Pizer, the national marriage project director for the advocacy group Lambda Legal. 'Each time there's an important step forward, it makes it easier for others to follow.'"
