Same-sex Marriage Updates

UPDATE: Iowa Supreme Court ruling on gay marriage set for release Friday, story here.


It is being widely reported that the Swedish Parliament,


in a 261-22 vote, approved same-sex marriage.

Meanwhile in the United States, the Vermont Legislature is set to vote on a same-sex marriage bill, a bill which the Governor has stated he will veto.  Vermont has civil unions for same-sex couples.

In Iowa, the wait for a decision on same-sex marriage from their highest court after oral arguments last December continues, and in New York, the highest court has decided to hear cases regarding New York's recognition of out-of-state same-sex marriages.

In West Virginia, the state legislature did not allow a constitutional amendment banning same-sex marriage to proceed.
