Interesting realization


Several interesting dominoes have fallen of late that lead to an intriguing potential chain of events:

1. So DC is doing gay marriages now. Cool.

2. Maryland's AG also just informed the state legislature that the mini-DOMA they passed last year does not preclude them from recognizing same sex marriages performed out of state (at least until the legislature decides to pass another bill). Even cooler.

3. Several folks where I work have been pushing for same sex partner benefits (or, at least, better benefits - the system they have right now is weird) for a while.

4. Maybe Q and I should get married in DC, then let the college know Maryland now recognizes us as married, and then see them change their benefits accordingly.

5. We could be state-wide heroes and pariahs all rolled up into one.

6. PROFIT!

I was pleasantly surprised to hear about D.C., especially after Prop-8 and all that jazz. :P

Doubly surprising considering it's California vs. the east coast - usually the roles are reversed. And Maryland is more conservative than DC, but the Attorney General said, for the moment, they'll have to recognize out-of-state marriages. Very interesting times indeed!
