Gay and Married in Massachusetts

Published.

Social trends appear to be following the same path as technological progress. Today marks the first day that same-sex couples can get married in the first state to allow such marriages, Massachusetts. There are still hurdles ahead for the couples, not the least of which is the movement in Massachusetts to amend the state constitution to explicitly define marriage as the union between a man and a woman. Such an amendment would instantly nullify the upcoming marriages. All the major news sites and channels will have continuing coverage all day and in the days ahead of this incredible change in American society. Surprisingly enough, this change is old news in many Europeans countries where it has long since become a nonissue.
