There are 6 comments on the Star-Gazette story from Jul 4, 2011, titled Gay wedding response has been quiet in Tier. In it, Star-Gazette reports that:

After legislation was signed legalizing same-sex marriage, the phones weren't exactly ringing off the hook inquiring about same-gender marriage licenses and weddings at city and town clerk offices and churches in the Southern Tier.

Some people are simply waiting for it to take effect. Others are waiting to see if the law really sticks, given what's happened in Maine and California. Still others are planning complete weddings, which takes time.

And true - some simply aren't interested. Not to mention those who haven't found that special someone yet.

If the situation were reversed, such that heterosexuals had been socialized to believe they couldn't be married, would they suddenly rush out to get licenses once they could?

I seriously doubt it.

Was it only racist, pedo Daniel from LI who posted about living in VA, or did this one, too?

At any rate, what a complete waste of space has not heard of is a barometer of precisely nothing.

Well, we knew your horizons aren't very broad. You really should get out once in a while.

Add to that that many who were in a hurry already married in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, or New Hampshire. I remember reading of New Yorkers who married in California a few years ago. I have no doubt a few even married in Iowa. Oh, and a lot more in Canada, the Netherlands, and other countries.

People who have been waiting for New York to legalize will take the time to have a festive celebration. Not like me, my husband, and our best friends who witnessed for each other in a very quiet ceremony.
