Commentary: Marriage Rites and Wrongs

On Thursday, the Supreme Judicial Court of Massachusetts ruled that a 1913 state law can be used to bar same-sex couples who live in other states from marrying in Massachusetts -- at least when the couples are from states where gay marriage is specifically prohibited. (See yesterday's post on the case here.)  Our readers may be interested in this editorial in Saturday’s Boson Globe urging the state legislature to “clean up the confusion” by repealing the 1913 statute.  Source.  Boston Globe, The Boston Globe Editorial Commentary may be found by clicking here (last visited April 1, 2006, reo).
