New Hampshire Seeks to Restore Marriage

December 29, 2011

New Hampshire's legislature could be taking up a bill to restore the definition of marriage when it reconvenes on Jan. 4, WORLD News Service reports. Last year, the state, which already had a same-sex civil-unions law, legalized same-sex marriage. If passed, HB 437, sponsored by Rep. David Bates, would leave in place the same-sex marriages already performed in the state but would restore the definition of marriage to being between one man and one woman, preventing further same-sex marriages from being performed.
