Connecticut overturns ban.

Taken from OUTZONE.

How out of it are we? We didn't even know this was a possibility, but then Connecticut just goes and wows us with a judicial ruling to overturn the ban on same-sex marriage in the state. Actually, we don't feel so bad because the news article we read called it unexpected.
Connecticut was already a civil union state, but the judges hooked it up for the eight same-sex couples who were plaintiffs in the case, not to mention all the other Connecticut gays out there. The Republican governer, Jodi Rell, doesn't agree with the ruling but also thinks that any attempts to overturn it will fail. Of course, some of those "family" groups are going to try it anyway.
So that's three down and forty seven to go. If anyone's counting.

I'm really glad that CT went this route :) I sure wish Maryland would!

Yeah, the "family" groups are always, in reality, just front-ends for right-wing fanatical religious groups. Real families love their gay kids too and want them to be just as happy in life as their straight kids.

Good for Connecticut! I think it's way past time for all states to give up the fight on that issue. It hurts no one and it's the right thing to do.
