Equality comes to Maryland

A same-sex marriage bill has been passed by the Maryland state Senate, and is expected to be signed into law within days. When that happens, Maryland will become the eighth US state to permit same-sex marriage.

Meanwhile, I'm wondering: if Maryland can do this, why can't we? Kiwis support same-sex marriage; shouldn't our law finally reflect that? Or will we be held hostage by the bigotry of National's rural backbench?
