Same sex marriage, a contradiction in terms.
We can stop right there

You are behind the times, there are over 18,000 legally married same sex couples in the state of California right now.. today.

There are over 120,000 nation wide

It is irelevant whether you personally recognize them or not, they are married, legally, legitimately.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, as stupid, ignorant, bigoted and mean spirited as they are.

Remember! There are no dumb posts, only angry, bigoted, stupid uneducated lowlife posters.

Interesting you say that, I happen to work with a same sex legally married couple, one of them is referred to as the husband and I was introduced to her wife.
They have twin daughters that are biologically the husbands and an unknown donor ( artificial insemination ), however they have said they want to do the same for the wife as well at some point ( twins are a handful )
so.. yeah no problem, to me, they are just a married couple, regardless
Your story sounds like another silly Big D made up one. All the same sex married couples I know call the men husbands and the women wives. I never heard of anyone calling a woman "husband" or a man "wife". And I certainly never heard of a husband giving birth. Are you sure Big D?

No, not made up, I know them personally.

They are actually the first same sex couple I have heard using terms like that myself... but it certainly didnít bother me.

The twins are cute :)

My son works for a VERY large global company that is actually considering pulling offices and manufacturing out of states that do not recognize equality for their married employees benefits if the Supreme court does not act decisively on a national scale ( not something I expect them to do )

Surprised me, but they can afford to

Not to worry there will still be a job at Chick Fil A for those states

No, not behind the times. There are 32 plus states that maintain the legal definition of marriage as a union of husband and wife. Some things are timeless.

True, as it is with anybody. The state in which their relationship was called married by the states does legally recognize them.
they are married, legally, legitimately.
Okay.....legally yes....legitimately......conju gally?

Interesting situation. So the wife, the female partner, apparently likes everything about a man but not the plumbing? Thus her choice of a female husband?

Yes more states have come over every year

but I live in California, and there are 18,000 legally legitimately married same sex couples here now, the lawsuit against prop 8 is about why other same sex couples are being singled out over the matter of when they wanted to get married

No chance of prop 8 not being overturned, if not by the supreme court than by the next election by ballot measure

The time has come to do the right thing

Good point. Do the other faiths and atheists get a free "get out of castration card?
I am aware that men fear castration as much as women fear being raped. Castration is a fitting sentence for the crime of rape.

interesting.

probably a company like google or microsoft. but i'm just guessing. that's pretty foward thinking for them.

what i'm faced with is working for an international company, based in a nordic country, that offers same sex spouse benefits. it also offers it in states that have same sex marriage civil unions recognized. however, where ssm or cu's aren't recognized, they don't. so, since i work in texas, nothing for us.

i do expect that to change once DOMA's ruled upon - and perhaps Prop 8 (depending on how they rule of course - for national recongition or just in CA).

KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL)- former Mount Carmel Vice-Mayor William Blakely, exposed himself while driving. News Channel 11 had the only reporter in court for Thursday's preliminary hearing in Kingsport.
"I was scared that I was gonna wreck, he was gonna cause me to wreck," witness Deborah Sturgill said.
"It seems that every victim would tell the same story. But I knew all the victims did not know each other," Kingsport Police Detective Terry Christian said.
Personal accounts in Thursday's testimonies started the same - Blakely allegedly waving to get the drivers' attention, then escalating to honking and partially crossing over into the drivers lane.
Each witness testified they were fearful Blakely's driving would cause an accident.
"He was taking his hand, wetting his mouth, and masturbating," Sturgill said.
"At over 90 miles per hour, he had his penis out [the window]... he was masturbating... and that's when it got really, really bad. I wouldn't look over any more, and I wrote his tag number down on my hand, which I believe he noticed, and he exited very quickly," Street said.
Sounds like a disturbed man... This is not the behavior of a mentally intact person, be they straight or gay.

California proved the people have no say, the constituional process the people followed, the rule of law proved to be a farce. What is the point of having the process, if the result is a federal judge over rules the people of the state?

You can whine and pout all you like. SSM is here to stay, coming soon to all 50 States. You can either adapt to reality or go extinct.

On the March 7, 2000 primary election, Proposition 22 was adopted by a vote of 61.4% to 38%, thus adding ß 308.5 to the Family Code, largely replicating the 1977 enactment. The one-sentence code section explicitly defined the union of a man and a woman as the only valid or recognizable form of marriage in the State of California. Proposition 22 was authored by State Senator William J. Knight, and the measure was dubbed the "Knight initiative" in an attempt to link it to the failed "Briggs Initiative" (Proposition 6 of 1978) that would have banned gays and lesbians from working as teachers in California's public schools. The California Supreme Court invalidated the results of Proposition 22 in 2008.

So you think that "the people" can just draw up any ol' petition and vote on it, eh? Are you forgetting about Judicial Review, or did youi never learn it in the first place?
