Wedding Bells Chime for California Same Sex Couples

My feelings actually are, every "marriage" in the US should be reclassified as a civil union between consenting adults, regardless of sex. Then, if they care to sanctify their union, it's up to their individual house of worship. One of the main reasons we made the decision to be married by a Unitarian Universalist minister is that we supported UU's stance on gay marriage -- even though as a heterosexual couple we're not in the market for that, we're proud to be affiliated with a community that has this stance.

News like this pleases me a great deal! My now-husband and I seriously considered not getting married because the opportunity didn't exist for so many people we respect and love--but we just couldn't take the risk of not having the legal privileges of marriage (particularly as we were planning to have children together). I agree with you, though, that there should be no such thing as State-sponsored marriage for anyone, that legal contracts between domestic partners (whether husband and wife, same-sex unions, or even cohabiting siblings or best friends) should be separate from traditions of sacred union. Interestingly, we looked into having a secular marriage ceremony at the hotel where we were having our reception and then a private marriage/blessing in a church, but apparently the US Catholic Church regards the legal and spiritual acts as inseparable (despite their total separation in some other nations). I thought that was super-problematic, and given our other issues with Catholicism, we just stuck with the hotel ...

(Apologies for the tangent! You just struck a couple chords for me.)
