Gay divorce Well, if the track record of straight marriages is any indication, this was bound to happen sooner or later. "Less than seven months after same-sex couples began tying the knot in Massachusetts, the state is seeing ts first gay divorces."

Gay Marriage Opponents See Fight Getting Tougher...or from a liberal view: "Whoo hoo!" The Boston Globe has a good article about the 'setback' that is about to happen to society on May 17th. No, not Brown vs. Board of Education's 50th Anniversary, but the Mass. Supreme Judicial Court's decision that gays and lesbians deserve equal marriage rights under the Mass. state constitution.
The Globe has an exhaustive list of links and opinions from bothsides of the issue, including video clips, a full timeline of the Goodrich case, and even national news and opinions on the issue.
(This is my first FPP.)
