What do the marriage votes mean for you?

Four states put same-sex marriage in the hands of voters yesterday. And the results are in from three:

  • Mainers made history as the first state in which voters themselves (not lawmakers or the courts) legalized gay marriage.
  • Marylanders said they want the same-sex marriage law passed earlier this year to go into action.
  • Minnesotans rejected a constitutional amendment that would have defined marriage as between one man and one woman.

The vote to uphold a law legalizing same-sex marriage in Washington is still too close to call, but the “Yes”es appear to be ahead. Here’s the most updated state-by-state information about same-sex marriage votes.

What do the results of these votes mean to you? Do they change anything for you or someone you know? Practically? Emotionally? What will you do next?
