Good job California! This is one giant step towards true equality! For all the bigots who do not agree with gay marraige, all I have to say is...... NEE NER NEE NEEE NER!!!! So what does everyone think? Good? Bad? Who cares?

I'm pretty excited about it. It's about time. I was pretty nervous when it seemed they were going to go in the other direction and not allow gay marriages or even unions to take place. It's definitely one huge step in the right direction. I just hope other states will take notice and step up themselves.

My partner and I have been together over 4 years now. It would be nice to really make it official one day but we don't leave near any place that would even consider lifting the ban.

I am not gay, but I have never agreed with a gay marriage ban. I don't think the government should have any say in who marries who or what people do with their lives. As long as they're not hurting anyone else, then why is it a big deal? The government is elected to represent us, not control us! "Us" includes gay people as well.

Most of the opposition to gay marraige comes from religious morals. However, since we have freedom of religion in America, that should play no part in who we legaly marry! It's a no brainer! Im glad that now more than one state has snapped out of it! Heads up New York - America will be looking OUR way next!

DDZ- Nobody on this thread said they disliked gay people. I have no problem with gays, I have many friends who are gay. There is no gene that makes you dislike a gay person. Sadly you were just raised that way.

I personally think people should be allowed to marry whom they choose no matter of gender. I think it's great that California did that.

I'm sure you've seen the discussion I posted on this subject, so you know my opinion. However, I wanted to come here and congratulate you on your victory!

Hey Tee, Sorry it took so long to get to this discussion. :( I just heard about this yesterday officially. This is huge, California is a politically powerful state. Thank god they are so liberal which is exactly why this happened. Now we need other big states to follow- it should be New York and Chicago...We'll just have to wait and see but this is definitely a step in the right direction.

I think it is great and way overdue.I have always thought that my gay friends should be able to marry.If two people who are of age want to marry , they should, gay or straight.Mass and Cali today, the rest of the 48 , tomorrow. it will happen. I don't know when but I know it will happen.

I heard the news this afternoon and I am thrilled to bits. I was jumping up and down. MA was step one. CA is step two. I'm beginning to believe that I will see my son MARRIED before I die. I'm only 39. I want to see my son and all of the people I love attain equality. Step two is in the books. Yyyaaaayyyy!!

Hi Tee, I think this is great, but why did a news report say it may be short lived? Can the law be shot down? I was going to invite you and your partner to move to Canada, but now you may not have to. Congratulations to all who have been fighting so long for equal rights. Blessings.

YIPPEE!! THAT"S GREAT! I'm very happy. This seems to be the trend here in Canada. We allow gay marriages here.
