Fight For Gay Marriage Is Personal For Maryland Delegate

Play associated audio

Mizeur (D) is one of six openly gay delegates in the Maryland House. She married her wife, Deborah, in California.

"We deserve our relationship to be protected, and it's time for Maryland to reconcile that," she says. "Families like mine and Deborah's deserve to have a marriage license that protects that commitment to forever that we've made to each other."

Deborah Mizeur says it's remarkable to watch as Heather Mizeur works to change their lives.

"I fell in love with Heather for all kinds of reasons, but partly for her strength, courage, and competence. She is a firebrand and I'm so glad she's on my side," she says.

If the measure passes, Gov. Martin O'Malley (D) has promised to sign it into law.
