New York court declines to recognize gay marriage
Read it at Reuters.
Recognize it or not, it's happening (gasp): gay couples are living together, paying rent, paying taxes, dealing with ungrateful, bitchy relatives and are pooling their resources together to scrape up the money for a $2million-walk-in-closet.
What's interesting about this is that the issue stems from a lawsuit that seeks to overturn a 97-year-old state law that confines marriage to a union between a man and a woman. Were those gay Victorians causing so much ruckus that lawmakers had to create legislation to keep men and women "normal?"
