The Iowa Supreme Court will let us know if it finds that the Iowa Constitution requires same-sex couples be allowed to marry. If the answer is yes it will be the first Midwest state and by far the most conservative to have thus declared.
For the record, I’d be a one happy fella if Illinois bucked the trend and passed full marriage rights via the legislature before any court action. Not likely…but it could happen. It’d be seen as a badge of honor for the state years from now.
