tweak13 writes "Earlier today the Iowa Supreme Court ruled that a law defining marriage as between one man and one woman is unconstitutional. The decision is the last in a series of decisions against the ban, starting with a judge in Polk county who allowed several same sex couples to marry before the order was suspended for review by higher courts. Marriages will begin as soon as three weeks from today, and only a constitutional amendment could reverse the court's decision. The earliest such an amendment could be put before Iowa voters is 2012.
