Ten years ago, the idea of marriage equality in New Hampshire was hotly contested.

Now, it seems like the right is part of the Granite State’s fabric – so much so that the Monitorfound this year that the number of same-sex marriages dropped by 50% from 2013 to 2018, a possible testament to the routineness of the practice.
