    WTF? Ban on gay marriage ruled unconstitutional!

    Great news! From the AP:
    BOSTON - Massachusetts' highest court ruled Tuesday that same-sex couples are legally entitled to wed under the state constitution, but stopped short of allowing marriage licenses to be issued to the couples who challenged the law.

    The Supreme Judicial Court's 4-3 ruling said the state's ban on gay marriage is unconstitutional and ordered the Legislature to come up with a solution within 180 days.

    I know the legal implications, etc are important in this decision, but seriously, is there anyone here that would get married if they could?


    cheers,

    The ruling doesn't make marriage legal..it basically just says that the legislature has 180 days to come up with "something different".
    Now what THAT will be is anyone's guess..but it would suprise me at all with Mass. being such a liberal state that they would actually legalize it.

    And yep! I would get married!
    Course gotta find someone that would want a wreck like me first!:crybaby:

    Not me, i don't believe in God so that'd be useless
    BUT if i could marry, i would still not. I understand for some people, it's important... but not for me.

    If you had asked me that two years ago I would probably have said no.

    Now, it's a different story.

    What Lee and I have is more than what most straight married couples have. So taking it to a legal level may be something I'd want to do, assuming of course it were legal.

    And I'm just talking legalities - there are certain protections a spouse has under the law that would be easier to do than having a lawyer draw up yards of papers to make happen otherwise (again assuming it was legal and we were given the same rights as straight couples).

    So would I get married, yes. But not for love and honor - Lee and I have that already.

    My two cents...

    Well for me, a marriage is just a religious thing. My partner and i have been together for 4 years now, and i don't need a religious freak to give me God's blessing or not...
    Sorry, i just have a very strong point of views when it comes to religions so remind me to never discuss about this EVER I might shock some people
    I believe in God, my God Not a God some people are trying to put in my head

    Anyway, i'm a big NO for a gay marriage but YES for any acts that can tie my partner and i together.

    I think the only reason I would ever get married is to force my family to give me presents


    cheers,

    My partner has refused to have birthdays since he turned 23, but instead he has annual celebrations of that day. (like his 5th anniversary of being 23). That way he gets the gifts and skips the aging factor (its a theory in the works).

    I think along that line, gay people should reject the traditional marriage and replace it with a celebration that is more in the gay line of thoughts...maybe it can be the day you both finally hit your target weight or some other monentous and joyous occasion.

    Any suggestions?

    cheers,

    Luke
