as has already been noted in the comments section of this post, the california supreme court today, as expected, upheld proposition 8 banning gay marriages in the state. at the same time, however, the court ruled that existing same-sex marriages, performed prior to prop 8's narrow passage last year, will be legally recognized.
so, california. you've got roughly 18,000 gays and lesbians who are legally married to their husbands/wifes. and a whole bunch of other gays and lesbians who will be denied that civil right.
how do you think that's gonna work out for you?
