WATCH: Lawmakers in New Hampshire Vote to Repeal Homosexual Marriage and Replace It with Civil Unions


New Hampshire lawmakers have voted in favor of repealing the state’s gay marriage law and replacing it with civil unions.

In Tuesday’s 11-6 vote, the state’s House Judiciary Committee recommended getting rid of same-sex marriage and instead allowing civil unions for any unmarried adults competent to enter into a contract.
Same-sex marriage became legal in New Hampshire in 2009, but Republicans have gained control of the state legislature since then.
Conservatives have been working to restore the traditional definition of marriage.
The full House will vote on the measure early next year. The repeal needs two-thirds of the vote to move forward to the Senate.
Democratic Gov. John Lynch has said he’ll veto any attempt to overturn gay marriage in his state.
