Iowa Judge Says Marriage Not Just Man, Woman

Judge Robert B. Hanson ruled that couples cannot be denied licenses to marry or marriage certificates or "in any other way be prevented from entering into civil marriage pursuant to Iowa Code Chapter 595 by reason of the fact that both persons comprising such as couple are of the same sex."

Yes, this will be appealed, and we'll see what happens on the next level. But I suspect that this is going to be the way this battle is fought in every state, and I really hope that our justices still remember the phrase, "separate but not equal", because it's been unequivocally proven that once you create separate situations, they will be treated differently, and thus unequally.
