Vermont was out in front with civil unions, but with three states legalizing gay marriage ahead of Vermont, something had to be done and they did it. With Vermont being the first state to legalize gay marriage by way of legislation they’re out in front again. Go Vermont! You’ve got brains and heart as well as beauty.
So, let’s look at the scoreboard. Massachusetts, Connecticut, Iowa and now Vermont have legal same-sex marriage and those marriages are also recognized in New York and as of today the District of Columbia. You’d really have to say that same-sex marriage is happening and it will not be stopped. Wedding planners are celebrating. And, of course, so are divorce lawyers. That’s just nature’s balancing act.
Social conservatives might want to take note. Social progress just keeps happening in a free nation, no matter how much it bothers you. Working your little black hearts out to prevent others from pursuing happiness in their own ways will never be rewarding.
