    ‘All you need is love’ — Maine latest U.S. state to legalize same-sex marriage

    "Same-sex couples in Maine began exchanging wedding vows shortly after midnight on Saturday as the state’s new marriage equality law took effect.

    Maine becomes the eighth U.S. state to legalize marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples, and the first to do so through a ballot initiative brought by petition, and enacted by a popular vote of its citizens."

    I am happy about this but also kind of angry that it is still not all 50 states yet. Good for Maine. Wish the rest of the country would follow.
