After all the lawsuits, all the people who died separated from their partners because of familial homophobia, all the outrageous death duties because gay partners weren’t covered by the same inheritance rules as straight marrieds, all the officials who here and there declared that they would issue marriage licenses to gay couples (like Gavin Newsom), all that and more. Everyone can now have the next-of-kin of their choice. Let’s have a really bang-up reception to celebrate! Let us eat cake! Champagne fountains for all!
