Today, Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley signed HB 438—a bill providing full marriage rights for same-sex couples—into law.

Maryland will become the 11th jurisdiction in the country in which same-sex couples can marry when the law goes into effect on January 1, 2013. Opponents have pledged to try to put the new law up for a popular vote before it takes effect.

Maryland joins seven other states, Washington D.C., and two tribal nations that no longer discriminate against same-sex couples in marriage.
