Hope I don't start too big of a bashfest here, but I think this is wonderful.

Margaret Miles (l.) and Cathy ten Broeke are the first same-sex couple to be married in Minnesota. Their son, Louie (c.) joins the celebration.

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.

Midnight weddings were also planned at several other county courthouses around Minnesota, as well as at the Mall of America's Chapel of Love.

Rhode Island joins Minnesota to make the 12th and 13th states where gay marriage is legal. Weddings weren't expected in Rhode Island until later Thursday morning.

    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.
