Best wishes to all the Minnesota couples who can marry now and whose relationships will enrich not only their families but our entire community. Proud to live in a state where love is the law!

I was unaware gay people couldn't get married in past years. Was there an orientation-o-meter that singled out gay people in past generations? It is amazing to see the endless media celebration over such a very divisive social issue. The societal split is only beginning, not ending, despite the Pollyannaish media stories.

The planet will continue on its never-ending journey around our sun, that same sun will continue to rise every day, and life-ending paradoxes will not ensue because beginning tomorrow we will be able to legally wed that one very special person we love. Excellent editorial.

goferfanz - your comments belong in the 50s and 60s, not in today's world. The approval rating for equality is rising, open your mind.

I am so very proud of our state. I can finally get married and legalize a 31 year long family. I'm so glad I moved here 10 years ago. I was raised in the South around people that were mostly ignorant about gay people and who and what we really are. Intolerance was the norm. In MN, I have found a warm, welcoming state with mostly educated and understanding people. I love MN! And a really big Thanks!

Everybody knows that it was basically "in your face" to the conservatives. If the Repubicans had promoted this it would have been defeated for the same reason.
