    • Abstract:
      Argues that May 17, when same-sex couples will gain the right to marry in Massachusetts, will not mark the beginning of a major political or legal shift in the United States, as many gay rights activists hope, and many same-sex marriage opponents fear. Prediction that gay couples will not flock to Massachusetts to get married because of a provision of the Massachusetts marriage law that refuses to recognize marriages celebrated in the state if they take place between paries domiciled in a state that does not recognize the marriage as valid; Speculation about whether the Massachusetts legislature will shorten the amount of time required to establish residency in the state to allow more couples to marry; Discussion of what legal rights same-sex couples married in Massachusetts will have if they travel to another state; Speculation about whether gay marriage supporters will ask courts to strike down state laws banning gay marriage as a violation of the federal Constitution; Argument that it is better politically to seek recognition of gay marriage from legislatures, rather than forcing the issue through lawsuits.
