Will the State of Washington Join Massachusetts and Allow Same-Sex Marriages?

A decision from the Washington Supreme Court is expected soon on the question of whether requiring marriage to be between a man and a woman violates the state Constitution's equal protection clause. Two lower courts ruled that it does. The court heard arguments last March on the issue and an opinion should be issued very soon.  Constitutional amendments in 19 states now ban same-sex marriage.  Source: United Press International, upi.com.
