Gay marriage safe in New Hampshire for now

U.S. NEWS

New Hampshire's Legislature will not vote in 2011 on either of two bills aimed at repealing the two-year-old law that made same-sex marriage legal.

Members of the House judiciary committee voted 15-0 without debate March 3 to place the bills on hold until 2012.

The committee unanimously voted down a third bill that would have converted same-sex marriages into a new kind of civil union different from the civil unions New Hampshire used to have.

An estimated 1,400 same-sex couples have married in New Hampshire.
