Now the real debate over gay marriage in North Carolina begins.

Residents should prepare for passionate and pricey campaigns over the definition of marriage in the next eight months, if previous ballot questions in other states and recent debate in North Carolina are any indication. Voters will decide in a May 8 referendum whether the state becomes like the rest of the Southeast and has a constitutional amendment limiting marriage to a man and a woman.
