Nirvana Galvez, left, hugs her newlywed Ruth Galvez on a cruise hosted by Marriage Equality New York in New York, Sunday, July 24, 2011, as they pass by lower Manhattan. The couple are domestic partners where they live in California, but flew to New York to get married on the first day it became legal in the state. New York became the sixth and largest state to recognize same-sex weddings in a close state Senate vote on June 24 after strong lobbying by Cuomo and advocates. The first gay marriages in New York were performed just after midnight and continued through the day at municipal offices that opened for special weekend hours. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)
