"In the past, Maryland has, as a legal principle, honored marriages performed elsewhere even when those marriages could not have been performed here....

"Mark and I would prefer to make it "official" in Maryland rather than traveling to New England. But until more of my colleagues in the General Assembly make it possible for gays and lesbians to legally marry here, we could at least take heart in knowing that our marriage was honored by our state. Whatever road it takes to get there, this 'gay guy' looks forward to the day when his family is like any other, and when future generations have no understanding of what it was like before all Americans had the freedom to marry the person they love."

--Maryland State Sen. Rich Madaleno
