Update on same-sex marriage in NY  

2 comments

As some of you might have heard, rumors were flying that the state senate was supposed to vote yesterday on whether or not to consider legalizing same-sex marriage in New York. As a proud New Yorker, I was hoping for the best. Unfortunately, the senate got caught up with budget-related issues and didn't get to vote on the marriage bill.

But, according to Governor Paterson, the bill should be voted on by the end of the year. So, if you're a New Yorker, please please visit the Human Rights Campaign's website to send a message to our senators and encourage them to vote in favor of same-sex marriage in New York!

What next?

    I've read this one as well as the post telling that New York voted no on legalizing same sex marriages. There are just a few things i would like to know: Why is it that the state senate gets to decide whether or not a couple is to be married? and why does the senate have so much time on their hands to be able to worry about and neglect the happiness of the women or men who wish to be in a same sex marriage? Can anyone imagine if there were states that didnt allow opposite sex marriages?
