Massachusetts Gay Marriage The Massachusetts Supreme Court ruled today that same-sex couples are entitled to marry. While the court did not order the state government to issue marriage licenses to the couples that challenged the law, it did order the legislature to address the issue in the next 180 days. The court declared that banning gay marriage violates the state's constitution. Join host Neal Conan for a discussion.
