Gay Marriage Officially Legal in New York!

Now that gay marriage is legal in New York, last Sunday over 800 weddings were performed for gays and lesbians from all over. It was a day full of love and acceptance for the men and women who in most states of the U.S, still to this day are not able to legally wed the ones they love. Some are saying that the fact that New York has officially legalized gay marriage,  that the only logical step would be for California to allow gay marriage next.  Personally though, I think we still may have quite a battle up ahead for that. Gay marriage was legal in California just last year, but enough people were opposed to it, that the law got overturned. If that was just last year, I highly doubt the opposed party will let it happen so easily. I do wish that it becomes legal here in California soon though, because then maybe if California and New York allows it, the rest of the U.S may just fall in line. Typically I'm all about marching to the beat of your own drum, and not being one of the sheep, but that would definitely be one heard I'd have no problem following.
