    Think of all the gay and lesbian weddings that will occur in states that have legal gay marriage.

    Federal workers will go to those states for their weddings.

    Jobs will be created for ministers and rabbis to marry couples, rentals for wedding receptions, not to mention caterers, florists, wedding planners, wedding gown and tuxedo sales and rentals, hotels, rental cars, airplanes and train fares for guests, and of course the vacation industry for the honeymoon.
    Not to mention fabulous wedding gifts.
    You get the picture.

    Now imagine that gay marriage is legal in all states.  Think about the job creation in all 50 states.

    Then, after gay marriage, there is gay divorce. That creates jobs for unemployed lawyers.
