We reported yesterday that Sweden had voted in favor of same-sex marriage instead of civil unions, and that the Iowa Supreme Court ruled last Friday that same-sex couples must be allowed to marry in Iowa.
Two more developments today. First, the legislature in Vermont overrode its governor's veto of same-sex marriage legislation, meaning that same-sex couples will now be able to marry in Vermont (a state that previously had civil unions). Second, the D.C. City Council (which legislates for the District of Columbia) voted to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other jurisdictions.
