@stardustintheeyes:  Dear Illinois,

Its about damn time!

P.S. In all seriousness, this is awesome news. Congrats on joining our “Cool Club of Marriage Equality and Tolerance” (better name coming soon)!

Didn’t that happen a couple of weeks ago? I live in Chicago, right near boystown, and a bunch of people were out celebrating.

Either way, good news! 😀

I am so thrilled to see the progress in this area.  Of the 16 states that have passed marriage equality, 7 of them have done so in 2013.  Obviously, this pace is not going to continue, but it’s a huge step forward from when we got engaged in 2008.  Then, we had only two states to choose from, and one of them revoked same-sex marriage a few months later.
