Maryland's Senate president, Mike Miller, says the Senate will begin debating the bill on Wednesday. Miller says the debate could last all day, and he says he has asked lawmakers to act "gentlemanlike" and "ladylike" as they consider the measure.

If approved, Maryland would become the sixth state to legalize gay marriage.
