Today the U.S. Supreme Court decision that Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act and Proposition 8 are unconstitutional was released! Basically this means two things:1. Already married same-sex couples are guaranteed the same rights and privileges heterosexual couples enjoy.
2. Same-sex marriage is legal in California!
Admittedly, I hoped that the Supreme Court would strike down Proposition 8 on basis of prohibiting same-sex marriage being unconstitutional (Equal Protection & Due Process etc.). But I’ll take this victory over the despicable law (although section 2 remains intact) that entered into force in 1996. 17 years later, and part of it is already gone, gone, gone! And hurray for people in California!
This is a joyous occasion!
