Important news on the gay marriage front! The governor of Massachusetts repealed a 1913 law preventing marriage licenses from being granted to those whose home states wouldn’t recognize the marriage. This means that homosexual couples can now be married by the state of Massachusetts. Although it doesn’t ensure recognition of those marriages in their home states if those states have mini-DOMA laws, it does mean recognized marriage for those in states which do not. As Dory says in Finding Nemo, “just keep swimming, just keep swimming.” One day we’ll have achieved full equality under the law, and Massachusetts will be able to pride itself on taking concrete steps to have brought that achievement into being.
