There is an article in the current issue of The Russain River Monthly which discusses plans by some of the resorts to offer romantic/wedding packages/honeymoon for gay and lesbian couples.   ;D  Have the best day

More good news.  After the court overturned the ban on same-sex marriage, a number of groups including the Campaign for California Families and 12 Attorneys Generals from other states including Alaska, Colorado, Florida, Idaho, Michigan, Nebraska, New Hampshire, South Carolina, South Dakota and Utah, urged the court to stay the ruling until after the Nov election when the issue will go to state voters. 

Today the State High Court Denied the Stay.

The reason Attorneys Generals from other states joined in the stay is because, unlike Massachusetts,  this law allows people from all over the county to come to California and get married.  And when you go back to your home state, you will have a certificate that says you are legally married which would "...could cause legal complications and confusion..."  As if.

Should the proposition pass and declare same-sex marriages as unconstitutional, some legal analysts have maintained "...that couples who marry in reliance on the court's decision will obtain rights that the voters cannot revoke."

Regardless of what happens in November, this whole Same-Sex Marriage issue vis-a-vis the California State Supreme Court is still a quantum leap forward.

It's going to get reeeeaaaaly ugly around here in Sac pretty soon. I bet the Slavic communities and the Church of The Divide are going to be protesting like mad again.

Bring it on.

It sounds like D and I need to head back to CA for another ceremony... this time in our own country!

I think that it's great.   I believe that 50 years or sooner down the road gay marriage will be accepted as no big deal.  People will look back at all the fussing opposition of the last few years call those days backward.
