    Six: New Hampshire will legalize same sex marriage

    New Hampshire has just become the sixth state to allow same sex marriage. The governor is about to sign it into law.

    "If you have no choice as to your sex, male or female; if you have no choice as to your color; if you have no choice as to your sexual orientation; then you have to be protected and given the same opportunity for life, liberty and happiness," Rep. Anthony DiFruscia, R-Windham, said during the hourlong debate.
    Although I might not agree that sexual orientation is always something you have no choice over, I still respect this decision. If gays want to marry, it is none of my damn business. I wish them happiness.

    Right on New Hampshire!
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    Something I'm not clear on... if a same sex couple gets married in a pro-GM state, do the other states have to recognize it?

    They should because of the full faith and credit clause in the Constitution. I foresee it being a big fight.

    I do not believe they have to recognize it. Some states if I remember right are agreeing to recognize it even tho they do not allow the marriages in there state, but not all.

    What exactly stops them from marrying at any location on the earth?

    alright!
    That depends on what you are considering northeast? Do you mean all of New England? Rhode Island has not passed it yet. Or if you're expanding beyond N.E. then you've still got New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey to go.
