Stanley Rosenberg.

Massachusetts Senate President Stanley Rosenberg (D) is getting married to his domestic partner, and one of his former legislative foes and a previous opponent of gay marriages will be performing the same-sex ceremony. A decade ago, while serving in the House, the current Lt. Governor Karyn Polito (R) was one of the leading opponents of gay marriage. But Polito has since changed her position. "Like many, including President Obama, my position has evolved and I support the rights of men and women to marry whomever they love and will continue to support the progress achieved over the last decade," she said.
