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.

          Cali. BDW member please vote NO on Prop 8 to not allow the state ruling on same sex marriages to be overturned and there be a ban put in place.

          No On 8, Don't Eliminate Marriage For Anyone

          NO on 8 - Equality California

            As a christian, I believe in the sanctity of marriage which is between a man and a woman.

                    Everyone deserves the chance to marry the person they love. How in the world can that be wrong.
