Listen up gay couples! You can now get legally married in paradise!
Hawaii's state Senate on Tuesday voted 19-4 to legalize marriage equality, making them the 15th state to extend equal marriage rights to same-sex couples!
The bill now heads to Governor Neil Abercrombie, who has promised to sign it into law!
Senator J. Kalani English spoke about this historical moment for Hawaii, saying:
"This is nothing more than the expansion of aloha in Hawaii.”
We expect there'll be A LOT of rainbow leis being worn around the islands now!
Gay couples in Hawaii will actually beat Illinois down the aisle! The Midwestern state voted to legalize same-sex marriage earlier this month but their new law won't take effect until next year!
Better late than never!
Hooray for LOVE!
