Progress: It continued on Election Day 2012, and it’s still coming. It’s almost time to put away such childish toys as this absurd-yet-telling stat: 25 states currently allow cousins to marry; now, after Election Day, 9 states and the District of Columbia allow same-sex couples the same privilege.

Maine on Friday officially joined the marriage equality ranks, and couples couldn’t wait to step up and take the plunge. Steven Bridges and Michael Snell were first in line and stole the show. “We finally feel equal and happy to live in Maine,” Bridges (pictured, left) told the Bangor Daily News.

The crowd outside, serenading couples (and the world) with “All You Need Is Love,” will give you chills like you wouldn’t believe.
