Today, Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chafee (I) signed two bills legalizing same-sex marriage on the steps of the state capitol in Providence. With that stroke of a pen, Rhode Island becomes the tenth state (plus DC) to accept marriage equality under the law. Same-sex couples will be able to marry beginning on August 1, while those who already are joined under the old civil union statute will be able to change their status to married.
