This book examines the meanings of marriage for couples in the two first states to extend that right to same sex couples: California and Massachusetts. It reveals what is at stake for these couples, how access to a legal institution fundamentally alters their consciousness, and what the impact of legal inclusion is for those traditionally excluded.
