Gay marriage hits the Hawkeye State on Monday, becoming the third state — after Massachusetts on Nov. 18, 2003, and Connecticut on Oct. 10, 2008 — to recognize true equal rights. (Vermont is next, beginning Sept. 1.) Same-sex marriage was supposed to become legal on Friday based on the Iowa Supreme Court’s “get it done in 21 days” ruling, but budget cuts meant closed government offices that day. We’ll be covering the city hall festivities all day tomorrow as they come in! Are you getting gay married in Iowa on Monday? Send your stories (and photos!) to us at [email protected].
