New Hampshire Becomes 6th State to Legalize Marriage for Gay and Lesbian Couples

Governor Lynch signs bill only hours after legislative approval

CONCORD — Governor John Lynch signed legislation that will give the legal protections of marriage to gay and lesbian couples in New Hampshire . Acting swiftly and decisively, Governor Lynch signed the legislation only hours after the legislature took the final vote on the issue.
“Today is a historic day for all Granite Staters,” said Mo Baxley, Executive Director of the New Hampshire Freedom to Marry Coalition. “We applaud Governor Lynch, Speaker Norelli and President Larsen and the leadership of the General Court for making sure that all loving, committed couples have the freedom to marry. Today, our shared values of individual liberty, freedom, and fairness have been upheld.”
New Hampshire is now the 6th state in the United States that extends the freedom to marry to gay and lesbian couples. This new law will go into effect on January 1, 2010.
