As mentioned below by Matt Baume, the State of Illinois, may see Marriage Equality as early soon as next month. Equality supporters say they are “within striking distance” to get a bill passed in early January, as reported in the Chicago Tribune on December 13th.
There is a lot of excitement downstate as well, as I know two couples who joined in a “civil union” earlier this year, and would be so happy to officially “tie the not” in their home state.

By all counts, we have a tremendous amount of support for this to pass, and believe it will, and when it does, I’ll get to see more photos, like above in January!
