Pennsylvania becomes newest same-sex marriage state

On the other side of the issue, Brian Brown, president of the National Organization for Marriage, took issue with Corbett’s decision not to appeal the ruling. He wrote on his blog, “Governor Corbett is abandoning marriage with this choice. He is also turning his back on the people of Pennsylvania and selling out his principles precisely when it is most necessary that he stand by them!”

There are about 70 marriage equality cases working their way through the courts, and more states are likely to join Pennsylvania in the near future.
