The New Hampshire state House has voted 211 to 116 to kill HB 437, the bill that would have repealed New Hampshire’s freedom to marry law. The New Hampshire House currently has a Republican majority, guaranteeing that this is a bipartisan victory. New Hampshire was the first state to adopt a marriage equality law without pressure from the courts. Since it’s enactment in 2010, approximately 1,800 same-sex couples have married.
