Today the California Supreme Court released it's ruling to uphold Prop 8 which was voted into law last November securing marriage as between one man and one woman. However, the court also upheld the gay marriages that took place prior to Prop 8 to remain valid. The San Jose Mercury News reported: The court found Proposition 8 did not "entirely repeal" or "abrogate" same-sex couples' state constitutional rights to privacy and due process. Instead, the court found, it carved out a limited exception to these constitutional rights by reserving the official term "marriage" for the union of opposite-sex couples, leaving undisturbed other aspects of same-sex couples' right to have an official recognized and protected family relationship.
