Connecticut has legalized same-sex marriage



Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal said he expected his state to officially legalize same-sex marriages after November 10. And so the state has concurred. Blumenthal said on October 28 that thanks to a landmark state Supreme Court decision, Connecticut as of November 12, 2008 allows same-sex marriages to occur and those entering into such unions are treated the same as individuals in opposite-sex marriages.

Said Blumenthal, “The simple answer to many of the questions that we’ve been asked is [yes,] they’ll be treated under the law exactly the same way as opposite-sex marriages.”  The repercussions in the New Jersey gay community in relation to same-sex marriage are expected soon.
