District of Columbia recognizes same-sex marriages
The District of Columbia now recognizes same-sex marriages performed in other states, although they will not be performed in the district itself. The bill passed in May, but did not go into effect until yesterday. The U.S. Congress, which has final say over D.C. legislation, declined to block the bill.
