Today, Illinois Gov. Pat Quinn signed marriage equality into law, making his state the 16th to legalize same-sex marriage.  Religious groups have pledged to challenge the law in court, but barring any judicial setbacks, gay couple will be able to obtain marriage licenses starting on June 1, 2014.

Last week, Hawaii became the 15th state to adopt marriage equality when Gov. Neil Abercrombie signed it into law.  And in October, gay marriage became legal in New Jersey when Gov. Chris Christie dropped an appeal challenging a court ruling it constitutional in light of June’s Supreme Court’s decision invalidating the Defense of Marriage Act.
