Gay marriage was legalized in Connecticut back in the Fall of 2008, but only by judicial decision. Today the other branches formalized that decision in law, as the governor signed a bill removing gender references from state law and transforming civil unions into legal marriages.
Anyone who opposed gay marriage in Connecticut on the basis of opposing judicial activism should be happy. Now all three branches of government are in agreement, and the will of the people of Connecticut has been written into law.
