If it passes, it will go before voters next year.</p><p></p><p>If you thought that same-sex marriage was already illegal in Indiana, you’d be right. Current state law says marriage is between one man, and one woman, and that’s that. Also banned is any kind of legal recognition for same sex couples, including domestic partnerships and civil unions.</p> Fri, 20 Dec 2013 22:15:13 +0000 Virginia Alvino 24461 at http://wboi.org Legislature Could Take Up Ban On Same-sex Marriage Senator Donnelly changes position on gay marriage http://wboi.org/post/senator-donnelly-changes-position-gay-marriage <p></p><p>Indiana Senator Joe Donnelly Friday publicly announced his support of same-sex marriage, saying he changed his position in light of recent Supreme Court arguments and public discussion.
