The full House is expected next week to adopt the committee's recommendations that the bill authorizing gay marriage not be overturned and that a ballot question on the subject be disallowed. (The ballot question seeks to amend the NH constitution to define marriage as a relationship between one man and one woman.)
It looks like gay marriage in New Hampshire is safe for the time being. Eventually, though, the matter needs the correct ruling from the US Supreme Court. Then the only threat to gay marriage anywhere in the US would be a constitutional amendment, which is a high hurdle.
