Dozens of New York same-sex couples who got married in Massachusetts prior to a July 2006 court ruling denying recognition of such unions in the Empire State will be considered legally married in both states, under an agreement between the Massachusetts attorney general's office and a Bay State Superior court judge. The couples' licenses were nullified by Massachusetts' enforcement of a 1913 law prohibiting marriages by out-of-state residents that would not be valid in their home states.
