Under these circumstances, we cannot find that retention of the traditional definition of marriage constitutes a compelling state interest. Accordingly, we conclude that to the extent the current California statutory provisions limit marriage to opposite-sex couples, these statutes are unconstitutional.Oh happy day! Congratulations are in order for the people of California! I am so happy for them... and for what this court decision indicates for the rest of us--the gradual changing of the hearts and minds in the United States.
I'm so happy I can't sit still. I just called my fiance and my buddy Pomoprophet in California. I feel like celebrating!
May happy days like this come soon for those of us in other states. Indeed, may such happy days come for people around the world :-)
