    This happened earlier this week but it we didn't mention it and I think it is huge! It may change down the road but I hope not, It's hard to believe it's 2008 and this is still an issue...I wish the haters would mind their own business and worry about their own marriages! Even the Governator isn't opposing this one...perhaps the tide is slowly turning?

      I applaud the decision. I never understood the opposition to two people wanting to commit to each other and become family regardless of their sexual orientation.

        I have heard the arguments against gay marriage, but I still don't get it. I hope we see some huge changes in the next few years. It is about time!

        I'm so happy for the couples that can now start planning their weddings. I know how much my wedding means to me & I'm glad they can now have the same joy.

          I agree with you both. I read somewhere that even if it is overturned, anyone married during this period will not likely have their licenses invalidated in the future...but this needs to stay as is, it's a basic rights violation not to mention an imposition of religious beliefs.

            I think it's awesome!

            The way it was worded on the news and stuff made it confusing to figure out what was going on. At first I though that gay marriage was banned in CA. Once my brain turned on with the help of coffee I realized what actually happened.

            Now if NY would jump on the wagon and start treating people with respect.

              I am so excited about this! I have a lot of gay friends. One close couple is going to get married now and I volunteer to be their wedding coordinator. I am so excited for them!

                This is incedible!!! Anybody should be able to commit to the person they love!

                  I was about to post about Ellen and you beat me to it. It was funny how she said she'll tell us who the lucky guy is later. I'm so happy for her. I think it's great!!!

                    I saw Ellen announce it too! I think it's awesome and again if it is overturned in the fall they should still be legally married so anyone interested better do it now just in case. But I'd like to think the people of CA are above the ignorance and would not vote to strike this down in November.

                    Stay tuned guys because this will be a big issue in upcoming presidential debates.
