Gay Marriage Beyond Massachusetts
by Doreen Brandt Newscenter

(Washington) Next week same-sex marriage becomes legal in Massachusetts, but two other states may not be far behind.
Lawsuits identical to the case that won marriage in Massachusetts are expected to reach high courts in New Jersey and Washington State by the end of 2004.

"We're living in historic times that will be looked back on by generations to follow. This isn't just one historic moment in Massachusetts next week -- it's the start of what will be a long period of progress and breakthroughs, with gay couples in other states also winning the right to marry and finally being treated equally under the law," said Kevin Cathcart, Executive Director of Lambda Legal.

"Lesbian and gay couples need the protections marriage provides, and they need them where they live and pay their taxes. We are closer than ever to making that a reality in several states."
