"On Monday, Massachusetts becomes the first state to make it legal for same-sex couples to marry. It follows a highly controversial decision from the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, striking down the heterosexuals-only restriction in the state's marriage law."
The high court refused entreaties by Republican Gov. Mitt Romney, a foe of same-sex marriage, to delay implementation of the high court's ruling until voters decide the issue. As a result, same-sex marriages will be legal in Massachusetts for the next 18 months -- but could then become illegal, creating a morass for the couples involved.
That would be something interesting to see, if it did go sour..
