    And they will continue to see those votes happen and they will see overturned amendments by vote in the future, should the court go too slow in just overturning them all. The tide has turned NP, my generation is much more accepting of same sex marriage and yours and those in between are dying out or just plain changing their minds.

    Two of the judges NP, right after it happened. The other one is still there. He "survived" the stupidity of the ignorant masses who don't know any better because his bench didn't come up til people realized how stupid it was to vote judges out of office for making the right decision, a decision that did not cause doom and destruction in the state, as certain conservatives and their anti-ssm groups want to try to contend will come from ssm being legal.

    Yes they should, just as AL, SC, and so many of the other Southern states were forced to recognize interracial marriages after the Loving decision.

    Actually it is a federal issue. Only one section of DOMA was struck down by the federal courts. That was the section on a federal definition for marriage. One of the other sections of DOMA that is still standing allows states not to recognize same sex marriages performed in other states. In essence, it is a federal law that gives states the ability not to recognize a lawful same sex marriage from another state. Without that federal section, every state would be required to recognize same sex marriages legally performed in other states. They would not be required to grant same sex marriages, but they would have to recognize them and give them all the same benefits. In other words, without that section, a state like Texas would not have to grant same sex marriages, but if a married same sex couple from New Hampshire moved there, they would have to recognize it.
