I am stunned, and supremely happy. The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Chief Justice John Roberts has decided not to intervene on behalf of those against marriage equality in DC and stop the passage of the legislation, or stop the issuing of marriage licenses.
And apparently, there will be cupcakes handed out to couples who head downtown for their marriage licenses tomorrow. There is a mandatory three-day waiting period, so the first official gay marriage in the District could happen as early as March 9, 2010.
UPDATE: Check out the first couple in line for the new marriage license in DC. I am so happy for these ladies.
