Hooray!  For someone like me, whose home state expressly prohibits gay marriage, this means I can actually get MARRIED, even if it means little-nothing back in VA.  How wonderful!

Hey, if you want to get married, just get married! It’s not illegal anywhere. It’s just not endorsed by the state 😉 Yeah, its wayyyy nicer to get the benefits of marriage, I’m sure… but if you’re wanting to get married for love – do it now! Then just get married by the state whenever it gets passed 😉

Maybe this will turn out different, but in almost every state – when it’s up to the voters – governmental recognition of SS marriages gets voted down. It even happened in my progressive state of California… It’ll be interesting to see how this one plays out.

Any step towards marriage equality is great in my book!  We’re reading Goodrich v. Boston Public Health Department in our ceremony.

It’s legal or becoming legal in Mass, VT, New Husband, Iowa(!), CT and Maine.  NY and DC already recognize same sex marriages from other states.   There is also a new brief filed in the Prop 8 fight.  All in all, positive steps!

When we got married in Massachusetts, we had to go to court to get a waiver of the three-day waiting period.  The person who checked us in at the courthouse asked for ID, and saw we were from Maryland.  She asked, “Do you have family in Massachusetts?”  We explained that we did not, but were unable to get married in our home state.  She responded, “Oh, that’s right!”, in a tone that made it clear she’d forgotten that we couldn’t just get married elsewhere.  Having our ability to marry so taken for granted was really refreshing!
