Victory in New Jersey

Marriage equality in the Garden State goes into effect tomorrow. I love what the court said: “The State has advanced a number of arguments, but none of them overcome this reality: same-sex couples who cannot marry are not treated equally under the law today. The harm to them is real, not abstract or speculative,” wrote Chief Justice Stuart Rabner in the decision.

Belated congratulations to England and Wales for legalizing marriage equality. What’s the deal, Scotland? And Germany, are you going to let England and France beat you on this?

SCOTUS rules!

In the meantime, a twelfth US state has approved marriage equality.

The first state becomes the 11th state to legalize same-sex marriage. The momentum will not be stopped.

Forty to go…

So who’s next? Illinois? Delaware? The UK?

It’s getting hard to keep track…

So now New Zealand (the first country, by the way, to allow women to vote) has now voted for marriage equality. Last week, France and Uruguay did the same thing. Earlier this year, Colorado approved civil unions, and a handful of Brazilian states voted to allow same sex marriage. Similar laws are on the fast track in the UK, Rhode Island, Delaware, and Nevada, among others.

So where next? What progressive state will be next to stop marriage discrimination? Germany, you’re the most powerful European economy, why not be equally innovative with public policy? Or how about Finland, the last hold out in northern Europe. Brazil? Japan? Mexico?

Damn, these are interesting times.

Viva la Uruguay!

Both Uruguay and France are on their way to becoming the 12th and 13th nations to legalize marriage equality. Yahoo commenters were quick to weigh in:

You said, “13 down, 183 to go.”
