allow out-of-state gay couples to marry in Massachusetts &
he stayed the 90 day waiting period!! This means that the law
will immediately go into effect!! So what are you waiting for???
Come to Massachusetts & tie the knot!! ......;)Read More....
Earlier this week the Bill was repealed by the House & by State
Senate a few weeks ago making it legal for out-of-state gay couples
to marry in the Bay State....:) This is a Great Victory!! For those who
are still uncomfortable with this check-OUT our short trailer on

Two Victories in the Legislature!

After years of focused lobbying by MGLPC and constituents, the Massachusetts House passed the 1913 Repeal by a vote of 118 to 35. This is an historic vote for the LGBT community and marriage equality - not just in Massachusetts but nationwide.

Once Governor Patrick signs the bill into law, same-sex couples may come from any state to be married in Massachusetts. This victory makes it more likely other states will eventually achieve marriage equality.

In the meantime, let your out-of-state friends know the Welcome mat is out in Massachusetts! Forward this email to them. Share the good news - it's time to start planning.
