As much as I rail against marriage as a deeply flawed patriarchal institution, I think anyone who wants to get married should be able to do so. I'm very happy--ecstatic, even, to live in the third state that allows same sex couples to marry.
Yay, Iowa Supreme Court! Amazing. Story below from the BBC:
Iowa's Supreme Court has ruled that a ban on same-sex marriages in the US state was unconstitutional.
The judges rejected an appeal against a lower court's 2007 ruling that the ban violated the rights of gay men and women in the state.
The case stems from a 2005 suit filed by a New York-based gay-rights group on behalf of six gay and lesbian couples.
Iowa now becomes the third US state to allow same-sex marriages after Connecticut and Massachusetts.
