Marriage In DC!

More

When it rains, it pours:

The D.C. Council voted today to recognize same-sex marriages performed in other states, on the same day that Vermont became the fourth state to legalize same-sex unions.

Dale Carpenter throws some cold water:

There are a couple of important things to keep in mind, however. First, D.C. council law is subject to override by Congress, which could place the Democrats in an awkward position. Second, recognition of gay marriages in D.C. would be subject to a ballot override.

Yes and yes. But for now, I have a chance to be legally married in the place I live for eight months of the year. Now: just think for a minute how many heterosexuals have ever asked themselves this question - even immigrating to foreign countries, let alone moving from one state to another.  This is enough for me right now, enough reason to celebrate.

It has been such a long journey, but we can see the mountaintop now.
