The silver lining is that about a year and a half ago, Governor Paterson ordered NY to recognize the marriages of gay couples that were performed in states where gay marriage is legal. Since then, I've helped a bunch of couples in Massachusetts and I know many more have gone right over the border to Connecticut.
For now, New York, this is not a bad situation to settle for, given that most other states won't recognize a gay marriage at all. At least there's New England...
If you are from New York, has yesterday's defeat changed your wedding plans? Did you expect the bill to pass?
