I’m sure you’re probably aware of this by now, but I just wanted to take a moment to recognize Rhode Island’s passage of Marriage Equality for gay couples last week.
According to The New York Times: Governor Chafee has made appeals for the bill on the grounds of religious tolerance, invoking the spirit of Roger Williams, who founded Rhode Island, which became a haven from religious persecution.
He has also said gay marriage could help the states lagging economy. We are at an economic disadvantage with our neighboring states when we do not have the welcome mat out for all those who want to work here and contribute to our economy, Mr. Chafee said after the vote on Tuesday.
We, here at Chatty Brides would like to welcome all of the new couples that are now able to have the very special day that all couples in love should experience. We can’t wait to see all of your weddings take shape! (Please send photos!) 🙂
