Gay and lesbian couples in California have a constitutional right to marry, a San Francisco Superior Court judge ruled Monday.
The ruling by Judge Richard Kramer is just the first step in a case that is headed for the state Supreme Court, probably sometime next year. But it marks the first time that a California judge has declared unconstitutional the state law that defines marriage as a union between a man and a woman.
Yay! If I ever meet the right guy, now we can get married here in California!
