A hard won victory

Massachusetts same-sex marriage pioneers split up (Reuters, Fri Jul 21, 2006 11:25am ET)

The lesbian couple whose landmark lawsuit helped Massachusetts become the only state in America where same-sex couples can marry legally have split up, a spokeswoman said on Friday.

Julie and Hillary Goodridge and six other gay and lesbian couples sued Massachusetts for the right to marry and won when the state's highest court ruled narrowly for them in 2003.

Martyrs to their own freedom, I suppose.
