NYC Couples Celebrate Gay Marriage Ruling
“The sky isn't going to fall-it isn't going to be the end of the world if gay couples wed.”
Michael Adams and his partner, Fred Davie, waited three years to find out whether their marriage in Massachusetts was legal.
On Wednesday, they got an answer. A judge ruled that marriages of gay couples from New York who wed in Massachusetts before last July are valid because New York had not explicitly banned same-sex marriages until then.
"We've been in limbo," Adams said. "To learn that the marriage we cherish so much is legal, and recognized in Massachusetts and New York-well, we can't wait to get together to pop open a bottle of champagne." Read more

As far as I know it's still illeagle in NYS! Can't overturn that one. Judge has no decentcy or morals. How did he ever become a judge, when he can't remember the law?

That's great..... finally in this hipocratical society someone had the guts to recoginize the constitutional rights of gay people couples. We pay our taxes (incluiding school taxes for your kids) and live our lives the same way a straight couple do and usually a majority of the criticals in this issue are the first ones to get caught in public bathrooms (right wing politicians and members of the clergy specially) and behind the bushes in the parks doing you know what.
Simply put.... teach tolerance to your kids, educate yourself and mind your own business.
