I'm pretty sure this is what happened in Multnomah County (Portland) in Oregon. The Oregon Supreme Court overturned it. But I think the California Supreme court ruled to allow same sex marriages right? I don't know if anyone could overturn it since marriage is a state recognized thing right?

well, i just remember the other thread about this, jamy was saying something about that. but that anyone married during the time it is ok, would be like grandfathered and it would still be valid.

I think this is cool, I love how happy everyone looked in the pictures, love that there are so many people there to support them (especially the picture of one of the brides' old mother right there with them), so cool. I was watching a video on CNN about some guy who disrupted a wedding to protest it, I'd get so mad if someone tried to stop my wedding, stupid ugly people.

There was just an article in the paper here about how many hundreds of millions of dollars this will bring to CA over the next three years - and most of it for wedding vendors. Good news for us Wedding Photographers. =)

You actually have any faith left in our government? You might want to read about the San Diego lawsuit over the removal of the Mount Soledad Cross. It's been in court for years, and a couple of years ago they finally put it to a county wide vote - 51% required to get the cross to stay.

The day before the vote some Judge says "no, I think it should be 67% instead" so they change the rules.

The vote comes and 78% of San Diego county says "leave the cross". So the Judge says "well then, that vote was unconstitutional".

Luckily the cross still stands....and the Lawyers continue to get richer.

You can read a lot more detail about it here, if you need something to put you to sleep one night:

I'm so happy and this is long overdue.

With all due respect to this issue which is obviously near to your heart as a San Diego resident, I think it detracts from the point of this thread which is the legalization of same sex marriage in CA.

 

Some people do still have faith in the government, if even a little bit, and I'm not sure that knowing about the Cross lawsuit in your city would change that...but I digress, this thread is about equal marriage rights for all and it seems we all agree this is something to be celebrated :)

Great news....long overdue....I really think WA state will be next since we always seem to follow CA initiatives....like banning smoking in all bars and restaurants. I hope it's coming :) I'm all about LOVE.....no matter what gender :)

MUCH better news for those who have been waiting and waiting to marry the person they love.
