Same Sex Marriage Became Legal In CA today...

Recommended Posts

I am so happy about this, truly I cannot tell you how frustrating it is to know that my own brother cannot experience the joy I felt on my wedding day.

I am proud of CA for doing this, I hope other states follow suit and that our next president won't be so close minded and stubborn. I honestly believe that one day I will be telling my daughter that not all people, including her uncle were allowed to get married and she will laugh and think that is crazy, just as I look back and think it was crazy that women were not allowed to vote.

there is a measure on the ballot to create a constitutional amendment in CA this November which would overturn the supreme courts ruling-that is the only way to overturn the supreme court in any state or in the country is to pass a constitutional amendment...and sadly enough there are still enough ignorant people in CA like the lady in Kern county who is just not going to issue any marriage liscenses at all instead of having to issue them to homosexuals.

I know you are new here but honestly this is offensive and since I don't know you I will assume you are joking and just happy for all the many many people who will finally be able to legally join together.

Well I may not have 10,000 posts but I wasn't joking at all. When the economy is in the tank and everyone is feeling it, hundreds of millions of dollars coming in is good for everyone.

Of course now there are certain people/places that are refusing to perfom same sex marriages, but that was expected. I'm surprised it took CA this long to do it. But then they're still talking about overturning it yet again, so we'll see what happens.

Sorry for detracting from the thread, I am very happy for those people who are now able to get married, and decide to do so.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
