DOMA Decision Convinced New Yorkers to Make It Official

WASHINGTON - MARCH 13:  U.S. Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy prepares to testify before the House Financial Services and General Government Subcommittee on Capitol Hill March 8, 2007 in Washington, DC. Kennedy and Justice Clarence Thomas spoke about concerns with the ongoing remodeling of the court building, the reduction of paperwork due to electronic media and the disparity of pay between federal judges and lawyers working in the private sector.

Although gay marriage has been legal in New York since 2011, The Wall Street Journal reports "some 180 couples wed in New York on Thursday, up from 151 who got married the previous Thursday, and 339 received marriage licenses, a 20% increase from a week ago." Sure, based on the small sample size it could just be a coincidence, but we're going to go ahead and picture Justice Kennedy dressed up like Cupid anyway.
