I was very happy about seeing this, as New York is such a large and populous state, and home to the Statue of Liberty. This is very fitting.
In addition, gay marriage is legal in Washington, DC. Also, my state, Maryland will recognize gay marriages performed in states where they are legal, as will Rhode Island.
I am hoping the courts remedy the situation in California, and eventually, the entire US...it is hard, having to live in one state and not being able to relocate to another for a job or the care of a relative, and then no longer be married in the new state.
I wonder what the last states to legalize gay marriage will be, it if continues on a state by state basis? My guess is Alabama, Mississippi, and Texas.
