In the last three weeks, three more states have joined (or will, soon) the ranks of those with marriage equality: New Jersey, Illinois, and Hawaii.

CNN notes the milestone: "As Hawaii and Illinois join the list of states approving same-sex marriage, the United States crosses a big mark on the issue: More than 1 in 3 Americans will live where same-sex marriage is legal.
It's a dramatic shift in a short period of time — one not seen on other social issues."
