As you may recall, last month a lower court in Maryland ruled that Maryland’s ban on same-sex marriages is unconstitutional. (That ruling is on hold pending appeal.)
At the time, I was glad about the ruling but fretted that it might set off an amendment to the Maryland Constitution banning same-sex marriage. Happily, the legislature in Maryland recently voted against amending their Constitution to ban SSM.
The final decision on SSM in Maryland will eventually be made by the Maryland Supreme Court, and that’s no sure thing, alas; but in the meanwhile this is good news.
