Massachusetts’ legislature is considering repeal of a 1913 law that prohibits people from other states from getting married there if the marriage wouldn’t be allowed where they live.
The law – which stopped interracial couples who couldn’t marry in their own states from marrying in Massachusetts – was resurrected after Massachusetts legalized same-sex marriage in 2004.
The speaker of the House, the president of the Senate and Gov. Deval Patrick all support the law’s repeal.
