The Iowa Supreme Court has upheld the right of gays and lesbians to marry in a unanimous ruling. The ruling will take effect in 21 days, meaning same-sex couples can begin marrying April 24. Iowa becomes the fourth state in the nation and the first in the Midwest to legalize same-sex marriage. In case you’re wondering, in order for this decision to be overturned by a constitutional amendment, it would require approval in two consecutive sessions of the state legislature, followed by a public vote.
