New Hampshire ushered in the new decade by becoming the fifth U.S. state to allow gay marriage. When the clock hit midnight, couples rushed to the state capital of Concord, braving freezing temperatures, to join the nearly 150 people waiting to get married by a justice of the peace. The law was passed in June, and Washington, D.C., is next up to legalize gay marriage. "I feel fabulous. It was wonderful, and it was historic," said Linda Murphy, who married her partner of 19 years.
