Equally Wed

Marriage equality in New Hampshire hangs in the balance. The state's House is expected to vote on House Bill 437, which would replace its gay marriage with civil unions, wcax.com reports. New Hampshire has legally recognized gay marriage since 2010.

If the legislation passes, voters would cast ballots in a non-binding vote in November. That allows lawmakers to stop the repeal. The Boston Globe reports legislators plan to vote on the bill Wednesday.

Nearly 60 percent of New Hampshire voters support marriage equality. Same-sex marriage became legally-recognized in Jan. 2010 after passing in 2009.

New Hampshire Gov. John Lynch pledges to veto the bill, queerty.com reports.
