Queerty is better as a member
I believe that Rhode Island already recognizes gay marriages performed in other states, they just don’t issue marriage licenses to gay couples. In Rhode Island, you can BE married, but you cannot GET married.
Why this is an issue at all baffles me. It’s a tiny state. A gay couple can leave the state, get married, return home before lunch, and be legally married under Rhode Island law. I understand why people would want to get married in their own state, but why would anyone else care whether the wedding took place on this side or that side of the state line?
@Ken: It’s about control & being able to force your morality on others.
Whatever happened to Illinois?
