MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Thursday will bring a new opportunity for gay couples in Minnesota and Rhode Island to throw weddings for the first time, though some will automatically be married when the clock strikes midnight.

Laws taking effect in both states will recognize the marriages of gay couples who legally married in another state or Canadian province that allows gay marriage.

Gay couples nationwide have ignored state lines in pursuit of a marriage license, even if it had no legal standing back home. As more states join those ranks, including Minnesota and Rhode Island on Thursday, such couples are deciding if another ceremony of some kind is in order.

That means those couples are deciding whether to throw a new celebration or let the day pass quietly.
