For those of you not in California (and I know that is most of you), last year, the California Supreme Court declared that denying same-sex couples the right to marry is a violation of the California Constitution and ordered that same-sex couples be allowed to legally marry. Thousands of couples did so. Immediately, conservative groups mobilized to launch a voter initiative to declare such marriages illegal. The campaign was misleading and confusing, and many voters voted "Yes" believing they were voting to protect same-sex marriage, when in fact, a "Yes" vote meant exactly the opposite. Prop 8, as it is called, passed, making same-sex marriage illegal once again, and leaving thousands of legally-married, same-sex couples in a bizarre and heart-breaking position. Prop 8 is now being challenged for constitutionality before the California Supreme Court. If it is found to be constitutional, legally-married same-sex couples will be legally divorced against their will.
