MARYLAND (Indiana’s NewsCenter) - Maryland has become the 8th state in the U.S. to allow same-sex marriages.
The state's governor signed a bill to legalize the marriages Thursday, saying it secures "human dignity" for all residents.
The law takes effect in 2013, and opponents plan to seek to overturn it through a referendum in November.
Maryland follows Washington, Connecticut, Iowa, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont to make gay marriage legal.
