The governor of Delaware, Jack Markell, announced yesterday afternoon a bill that would legalize gay and lesbian marriage in the The First State. Given that both the upper and lower chambers of the Delaware legislature are controlled by Democrats, the governor expects that a bill would pass, though he cautions that “nothing is sure until it’s done.” Markell, a long-time supporter of the LGBT community, championed a bill in 2011 that allowed gay couples to enter into civil unions, but he now doesn’t think it’s enough. “What we know is same-sex couples want to get married for the same reason that other couples want to get married,” Markell said in a telephone interview.
