Same-Sex Couples Marrying in Connecticut

Today is the first day that same-sex couples in Connecticut can take advantage of the state's new law allowing them to marry. But in contrast to the enormous amount of media generated by the first marriages in Massachusetts four years ago and in California earlier in 2008, the early nuptials in Connecticut haven't garnered nearly as much attention, according to an article in the Hartford Courant. Apparently non-gay people there are now much more concerned about things that actually affect them, like the economy. A refreshing change right in the face of all the folks who think other people's intimate relationships are their business in 30 of the other states.
