“As Iowa Goes So Goes the Nation”?

As you may have heard by now, this morning, the Iowa Supreme Court under Justice Cady released their ruling in Varnum v Brien, which declared that the Iowa Defense of Marriage Act (a law to prevent same-sex marriage) was inherently unconstitutional under the equality clauses of the Iowa Constitution.

In short, the ruling legalized gay marriage in Iowa. Marriages will be able to proceed in three weeks.

That doesn’t mean that this is over and done with,  but as of right now it feels pretty great to be in Iowa.

    It will be interesting to see how this plays out in DesMoines and if there are any federal appeals.
