On Tuesday, May 7, 2013,  Delaware’s state senate passed a marriage equality bill, which had already been passed in the house.  Almost immediately thereafter, Delaware Governor Jack Markell signed the bill into law, making Delaware the eleventh state to recognize same-sex marriage.  The decision to pass the bill is especially significant, because it repeals the ban on same-sex marriage that Delaware has had in place since 1996—the same year DOMA was passed.
