Goin’ to the chapel and we’re Gonna get married
                               —– "The Chapel of Love", by the Dixie Cups

Today (November 12th) is the day that many lesbian and gay couples will indeed be going to the chapel (or town clerk’s offices, or other places); it’s the day that they can get officially married. 

The Connecticut Supreme Court in a 4-3 decision today overturned the state’s ban on same-sex marriages.  The ruling in Kerrigan v. Commissioner of Public Health (download majority opinion here) is ground-breaking, breathtaking and warrants all employers’ full attention.
