Prop 8 plus 18,000


Although the court split 6-1 on the constitutionality of Proposition 8, the justices were unanimous in deciding to keep intact the marriages of as many as 18,000 gay couples who exchanged vows before the election. The marriages began last June, after a 4-3 state high court ruling striking down the marriage ban last May.


California Supreme Court Upholds Prop 8 - says 18,000 gay marriages already performed still valid!

It's a step.

My marriage is still valid - but I'm still pissed for all my friends who never got the chance before election day. I still boggles my mind that strangers can vote on my rights. I used to love California. Not so much anymore.
