NY to Recognize Out of State Same-Sex Marriages

Governor Patterson ordered state agencies to recognize out of state same-sex marriages as legal marriages in the state of New York. In a memo released earlier this month the Governor informed all state agencies that failure to recognize these marriages "could be subject to liability". Though the memo was released about two weeks ago, media attention was not given to the story until earlier this week.

Slowly but surely same-sex marriages will be recognized every where. It's just going to take a while.
