Summary: The Connecticut Supreme Court issued its final judgment today that same-sex marriage, as opposed to civil unions, are the law of this state. As of about 9:30am, all town clerks were notified that they could issue marriage licenses to any couple — same-sexed and differently-sexed — that wanted them. The state also rejected a ballot question to call a constitutional convention this past Election Day, thus limiting anyone’s ability to modify the state constitution for the next twenty years.
I rarely think much about my state. Today I am exceptionally proud of them. Thank you, Connecticut — now you’re more liberal than California.
