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!

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 New Jersey recently repealed their capital punishment law and no longer have it as a possible sentence.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.
