And then there were Six

The first same sex couples were married today in Washington D.C., the sixth American jurisdiction to recognize same sex marriage.

The District of Columbia’s legalization of same sex marriage may seem a small victory after the losses in Maine, New York and New Jersey last fall, but it is a victory.

The retreat is over although the time is probably not ripe for a new offensive. Gay marriage will become a reality but the path it will follow to get to general acceptance is still unclear.
