That’s the number of states that will soon have marriage equality, with today’s news from that little state. All of New England now guarantees civil equality. Delaware’s House just passed a bill as well. TP notes:
Advocates are optimistic about passage. Governor Jack Markell (D) has strongly backed the bill. Marriage equality has the support of Delaware’s entire Congressional delegation, DuPont chemicals (one of its largest employers), and 54 percent of voters. The state easily passed civil unions in 2011.
