Marriage Announcment in the Illinois Legislature

Illinois lawmaker Deborah Mell announced her engagement to her female partner on the House floor on Wednesday. Unfortunately, Illinois passed a law in 1996 that specifically defines marriage as applying only to a man and a woman. Same-sex couples can't get civil unions in Illinois, either.

Mell and her partner will travel to Iowa to get married.
