One year ago on September 1, Vermont's same-sex marriage law went into effect. By the end of July, 1,044 same-sex marriages had been performed in Vermont. More than half of those marriages were out-of-state couples whose unions may not be recognized at home. It begs the question, what are the real benefits of this law?
