By MICHAEL K. LAVERSmlavers@washblade.com
Delaware this week joined 10 other states andWashington, D.C. in legalizing same-sex marriage,continuing a string of victories for marriageadvocates that began in November.The Delaware Senate on Tuesday narrowlyapproved a bill that will allow same-sex marriage inthe First State. The 12-9 vote came more than threehours after lawmakers began to hear testimonyfrom House Bill 75 supporters and opponents.Sen. Karen Peterson (D-Stanton) came out as alesbian while speaking in support of House Bill 75.“We are not seeking to redefine marriage,” shesaid, noting she and her partner of more than 20years entered into a civil union once the state’s civilunions law took effect in January 2012. “We areseeking to expand the definition of marriage just asthe Supreme Court did in the Loving v. Virginia case.”Senate President Pro Tempore Patricia Blevins(D-Elsmere,) Senate Majority Whip Margaret Rose
