MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Dozens of gay couples are getting married at Minneapolis City Hall as Minnesota becomes the latest state to legalize same-sex marriage.

The law allowed weddings to begin at 12:01 a.m. Thursday, and 42 couples were expected to be married by Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak and several Hennepin County judges in the hours before dawn.

Whenever I see lesbian wedding photos I can't help but notice how most of them look related. It's crazy.

Hopefully more states will join soon.  It's been legal here in MA since '04.
