Positive federal move in Michigan marriage limbo

by Jeremy Hooper

Good news for those 300+ Michigan same-sex couples who were able to sneak through the window and get married before a federal court's pro-equality decision was stayed on appeal:


BREAKING: Obama admin to recognize Michigan same-sex marriages
[Wash Blade]

Oddly, these couples still do not get state benefits, even though their marriages are recognized. It's all part of that fun game known as "how married are we?" that so many same-sex married couples have had to play in the days following their nuptials. Some couples get to go on honeymoons; we get this indignity.

At some point, this silliness will end. Until then, we must applaud these positive steps.
