New York: Gay marriages recognized here too

Law.com reports:

Fairness and fear of legal liability convinced New York Gov. David A. Paterson to direct all state agencies to immediately recognize as valid same-sex marriages solemnized outside of New York, the governor said Thursday.

Massachusetts requires you to be a legal resident in MA to get married.

As far as I know, California does not.

You can’t stop the steady march of civil rights.

The first same-sex couple to get a marriage license in Massachusetts was a UU couple and it was issued by the UU city clerk.

    Actually, MA law requires that the place you live recognize your marriage as valid in order to get married in MA.

    Until Gov. Paterson’s directive, only MA recognized same-sex marriages performed in MA, so the effect of MA’s law was that only MA residents could marry there.

    Now, NY residents should be able to marry in MA.
