With less than a week before voters decide on Question 1, supporters on Tuesday released an ad featuring a young man talking about his two-mom family.

In the 30-second ad released by Mainers United for Marriage, the largest group working to pass the ballot question, Brian Arsenault says his moms' relationship inspires him.

“When I do meet a girl and fall in love and settle down and get married, I want the relationship between me and my wife to be the same as it is between my moms,” Arsenault says in the ad. “I just hope that my moms and all other committed couples get the chance to stand up and get married.” (The video is embedded on this page.

The ad is part of a last-minute barrage of pitches for and against the measure, which if approved, would make Maine the first state in the nation to legalize gay nuptials by referendum.

The issue is also on the ballot in Minnesota, Maryland and Washington state.

In Maryland and Washington, voters are being asked to either uphold or reject a marriage law approved by lawmakers. Minnesotans will decide on a constitutional amendment defining marriage as a heterosexual union.
