    I'm not against gay marriage, but I can't see how it would be a boon to an economy. Maybe with showers and such. Gay divorce on the other hand might with attorneys fees and yard sales.

    Interesting, Gay marriage has been legalized here in Mass for maybe 8-10 years.. I don't recall if it boosted the economy though? This is good news then for those in Washington State :)

    Since I've worked in jewelry for I have heard a lot that legalizing gay marriage is the only thing that has a potential for really boosting the jewelry business. That would help the economy a lot :) I hope we approve it, last election we defeated an amendment that would define marriage as "between one man and one woman."

    Honestly I have not seen any changes positive or negative since gay marriage was legalized on a personal note. I lived next door to a couple who married the day it was legalized. Nice guys and eventually adopted 2 children. I see nothing wrong with it, but that is my personal opinion.
