3 Down 47 To Go

Today the Connecticut Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have the right to marry. Even though the state already allows same-sex civil unions, the court ruled that they did not go far enough.

The 4-3 ruling will make Connecticut the third state, behind Massachusetts and California, to allow same-sex marriages, decisions that in all cases were made by the highest state court. The decision marks the first time that a court rejected civil unions as an alternative to granting gay couples the right to marry.
