From the NYT, on gay marriage in Ithaca:
“We were prepared to get married today,” said Margot D. Chiuten, 28, a landscape architect who intends to marry Shawna M. Black, 27.
The couple said they were a bit disappointed they couldn’t marry on Monday, but were encouraged that the city and its legal department would be on their side. “We’re trying to have a child,” Ms. Black said. “And we don’t want it to be born out of wedlock.”
