House Bill 631: Changes Term ‘Marriage’ to ‘Civil Marriage’
Delegates Pendergrass, Ali, Guzzone, Montgomery, and F. Turner
This bill would change references to “marriage” in Maryland law to “civil marriage.” By only referring to “civil” marriage, this bill will create a dichotomy between religious and civil marriage, and could likely lead to discrimination against religious marriage.
