Default Rhode Island is #10...

...in legalizing marriage equality:

Rhode Island Becomes Tenth State To Make Same-Sex Marriage Legal

Quote:
Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee signed a bill legalizing same-sex marriage after the state legislature approved the measure Thursday, making Rhode Island the tenth state in the nation to give same-sex couples the right to wed.

Last week both the Rhode Island House and Senate approved by large margins measures allowing same-sex marriage, but more votes were required after the legislation was tweaked. The law will go into effect August 1.

Iowa, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Maine, Maryland, Washington and the District of Columbia allow same-sex marriage. Their combined populations, based on U.S. Census estimates for 2012, represent 15.8% of the U.S. population.

The addition of Rhode Island's 1,050,292 residents will nudge that up to 16.1%.

"Today's vote shows that marriage doesn't belong to a particular party or ideology, and increasingly, the public and politicians alike realize that only marriage provides loving couples and families with the protection they need and deserve," said Chad Griffin, the president of the gay rights group Human Rights Campaign.

"That the entire Rhode Island Senate GOP caucus joined with a vast majority of Democratic lawmakers to live up to the state's values in voting for marriage will inspire more momentum in more states," added Marc Solomon, the national campaign director for pro-same-sex marriage group Freedom to Marry. "It is time now for the Supreme Court to uphold these American values for all loving and committed couples."
Same-Sex Marriage is now legal throughout New England

The Sup Ct's decision on DOMA should come out soon.
