5 States for Marriage Equality -- 45 to Go

Yeah for Maine!

It joins Connecticut, Vermont, Massachusetts, and Iowa in assuring marriage equality for same sex couples.

New Hampshire, New Jersey, and New York may not be far behind. And we're praying for a good outcome in California.

It's a little like abortion in the late 1960's and early 1970's. As states begin to recognize these rights, surely the U.S. Supreme Court will follow. DOMA has to be upturned -- by the Congress preferably, by the Supreme Court if it has to be. Sooner of later, a couple married in say Connecticut is going to want to move to say Nevada and have their marriage recognized.

Here's my prediction: marriage equality in the U.S. by 2015. What do you think?
