The court that made Massachusetts the first state to legalize gay marriage ruled Thursday that same-sex couples from other states where gay marriage is prohibited, including Connecticut, cannot marry here.

They really had no choice -- the law in question might be old and dusty, but it's pretty clear.

And this was a problem in Vermont, because people who civil unionized in Vermont had to be divorced in Vermont. I imagine the trip back for the divorce was a lot less fun to arrange than the trip up for the wedding.
