    Congrats to all who live in Wisconsin!!

    Also, my home state of North Dakota became the last state in the country to be sued by couples seeking the right to marry in their home state.

    I cannot believe how much progress has been made all across the nation over the last few years. Many thanks to everyone involved in securing equal rights for all!

    Well this is awesome news. The beautiful, Midwestern state of Wisconsin has finally shifted to the good by getting gay marriage. I hope the rural, frontier state of North Dakota experiences a very similar victory and shifts to the good. It is too bad that the legislatures in both Wisconsin and North Dakota didn't make gay marriage the law of the land rather than having the courts ordering them to do so.

    It is interesting that in Clay County, Minnesota, which borders ND and where gay marriage is legal more than two times the number of same-sex marriage applications have come from ND residents!

    Yes, its about time after decade of rule by the democrats that Wisconsin is finally doing the right thing. Its funny how after years of running this state that the so-called gay rights party,(democrat), didn't do this earlier?

    Will the republicans allow it for North Dakota or will they appeal the federal court's ruling if it goes against that state's ban on gay marriage.
