Governor Martin O' Malley signed the bill allowing the gay marriage legalization in Maryland which becomes the 8th state to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry.

"Religious freedom was the very reason for our state's founding and at the heart of religious freedom is the freedom of individual conscience," O'Malley told USAToday.

The law will take effect in January 2013 but we already know its opposents will try to overturn it.
