I totally agree, If I could, I would vote no on this as well!

I talked to my grandmother today and she even said she thought it was totally inappropriate for the state to define marriage as that is a religious issue. My 83 year old grandmother voted NO!!!!! (my other grandmother voted yes so they canceled each other out).

So the court in Norwalk (L.A.) stopped issuing gay marriage licenses today and will resume if told by court order. Napa county stopped as well. Solano County (N. CA) will continue to issue gay marriage licenses until ordered otherwise. I'm not sure where the other counties stand.

 

Someone made a striking point, saying that chickens now have more rights than gay Californians (you know we passed that animal rights measure). It's ludicrous.

 

For couples married during the 'legal' time, the CA Attorney General said the state will fight for their right to remain legal. I expect a lot of lawsuits as this ban is unconstitutional...that's all I know!

Napa, not napa, that makes me embarrassed that my marriage license came from there.

too bad, I wish this didn't have to happen, but like it was said earlier maybe this is the situation that will finally bring it to the supreme court.

Marriage is a legal contract, not just a religious term. That being said, many family law issues are governed by state law. Divorce, custody and child support, as well as the requirements for a valid marriage are all based on state law. The U.S. Constitution reserves these rights to the states via the 10th Amendment. I don't know of any case/situation where the issue of marriage has implicated any First Amendment rights.

 

States have the right to determine many things such as capital punishment and restrictions on abortion. These are normally submitted to the population of the state via a referundum. New Jersey recently repealed their capital punishment law and no longer have it as a possible sentence.

 

The Defense of Marriage Act, passed in 1996 and signed by Mr. Bill Clinton, provided that as far as the federal government is concerned, marriage is between a man and a woman. This law has survived numerous constitutional challenges, and appeals to the Supreme Court regarding this law have been rejected by the Court.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
