A US district judge ruled Thursday that Nebraska's constitutional ban on same sex marriage "goes far beyond merely defining marriage as between a man and a woman" http://www.advocate.com/news_detail.asp?id=16865. Judge Joseph Bataillon ruled that the ban "imposes significant burdens on both the expressive and intimate associational rights" of gays. Nebraska's ban went further than stopping same sex marriage. It prohibited same sex couples from enjoying many of the legal protections that heterosexual couples have.
So, for those other 39 states (40 total) that have laws banning same sex marriage, beware, that if the bans go too far, they too will be struck down..................hopefully!
