Maryland Attorney General Calls for Honoring Out-of-State Marriages of Same-Sex Couples
“Following the Practice of Honoring Marriages, Without Exception”
Statement by , Executive Director of Freedom to Marry, following the release of Maryland Attorney General Doug Gansler’s opinion calling for recognition of out-of-state marriages:
"As this important Attorney General's Opinion makes clear, Maryland will continue to follow the tradition and common-sense practice of honoring out-of-state marriages, without a ‘gay exception’. As same-sex couples marry next door in the District of Columbia and across America, Maryland will treat those families with respect, giving Marylanders a chance to see neighbor couples legally married, with families helped and no one hurt."
